Feel the 90s again with this retro tunnel. It is an OpenVPN layer-2 tunnel with a simple Raspberry Pi image providing authentic Plug and Play™ experience.
The internet speed is limited to 56 kb/s when using the tunnel. LAN speeds are not restricted.
IPX/SPX and all the non-IP protocols are passed as-is through the tunnel, so DOOM and many other games work out of the box!
The service is not an official part of Revision party but takes place simultaneously. The tunnel service is available during Easter 2022, from 14th to 18th of April, 2022.

Feel free to add services to the network and inform us!
In case you don't have have wireless in your Raspberry Pi, you can use USB to Ethernet converter as the WAN port. Alternatively, you can even plug an Android phone and tether the connection to USB.
Although the tunnel is encrypted, the keys are shared on this page so you are basically having a LAN party with random people. Keep in mind that the software in old computers is unmaintained and most likely has multiple security holes in it. Take a backup of your system and don't store any personal data on connected computers!
This goes both ways so it's not acceptable behaviour to abuse or attack any computers via this network. Such activity will lead to banning and/or criminal liablity.
You've got no PC but want to join? Oh yes! There is a software I wrote with jsalin called ipxgw. It allows you to play with DOSBox and join the very same IPX network game!
