"ZeroTier" that allows you to connect Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS with VPN without difficult setting

Virtually construct a private network and exchange data directlyVirtual Private Network (VPN)Although it is very convenient, it has the disadvantage that knowledge is necessary for the work of building a virtual network and the work itself is complicated. However, if you use "ZeroTier" of open source software, you can specify the network information without doing much of the work of building such a VPN, and it is also possible to specify that the terminals such as Mac, Linux, Android etc. are encrypted It is easy to connect with VPN, so I immediately tried VPN connection using Windows terminal and Android terminal.

As we move to using ZeroTier, we first download software for client PC. Click "Download ZeroTier One" in Step 1.

Click "Install".

Click "Finish" to activate ZeroTier One.

This is the start screen of ZeroTier One.

Let's specify "8056c2e21c000001" which is published for testing on the official page to the virtual network.

Enter "8056c2e21c000001" in the text box and click "Join".

Then, the status became "OK" and it was possible to connect to the virtual network.

In the official page "http://earth.zerotier.net/Access to ... ...

A welcome page opens, and if the virtual IP address is displayed, you can confirm that it is connected correctly.

I was able to connect to the virtual network safely.

The Windows 7 PC and the Android terminal are now connected to the same virtual network. In order to check whether the connection was done correctly, I tried to ping the Android terminal from a Windows 7 terminal using a command prompt, and Ping returned. When you release the network of Android terminal, Ping does not return, so it seems that both terminals are able to connect with virtual network.

To disconnect from the virtual network, just click "Leave".

You can easily connect to and disconnect from the virtual network using the "Join" and "Leave" buttons.

You can easily connect to the virtual network without making special settingsZeroTierIt is very easy to use tasks such as using software premised on the same network or directly designating individual terminals in the closed network from the external network. Of course, besides the virtual network of the official page, it is also possible to easily construct a VPN network using a server built by you.
