Let's Connect! Client-Server to P2P

Add P2P features to Let's Connect!

Let's Connect! provides an open-source VPN solution allowing ISPs, hosting providers and businesses to easily set up a secure VPN service. Currently Let's Connect! has been engineered in a traditional client-server VPN model. Basically connecting the client with VPN technology into the organization where the VPN server is deployed.

Let's Connect! is also used in the educational and research community under the name eduVPN. Roughly 140 organisations, and estimated 300K users, around the globe are using eduVPN.

The current client-server model of Let's Connect! doesn't facilitate directly connecting devices located in various places, like IoT devices at home or services offered in various datacenters or (public) cloud environments.

This project focusses on engineering a P2P solution integrated with Let's Connect! VPN, which empowers users to connect safely to all their devices, anywhere on the internet.
