Zebedee is a simple program to establish an encrypted, compressed "tunnel" for TCP/IP or UDP data transfer between two systems.
Zebedee is a simple program to establish an encrypted, compressed "tunnel" for TCP/IP or UDP data transfer between two systems.

This allows data from, for example, telnet, ftp and X sessions to be protected from snooping. You can also use compression, either with or without data encryption, to gain performance over low-bandwidth networks.

Zebedee is made with next goals in mind:

Provide client and server functionality under both UNIX/Linux and Windows.

Be easy to install, use and maintain with little or no configuration required.

Have a small footprint, low wire protocol overhead and give significant traffic reduction by the use of compression.

Use only algorithms that are either unpatented or for which the patent has expired.

Be entirely free for commercial or non-commercial use and distributed under the term of the GNU General Public Licence (see LICENCE.txt for details).

For further information on how to use Zebedee see the filezebedee.html in the distribution (or the manual page for zebedee(1) under UNIX -- it is basically the same text). Example
configuration files are also provided.

Versions of Zebedee in the 2.4.x series are stable, "production" versions. The development series, containing new features, but less well tested is numbered 2.5.x.

What's New in This Release:

Fix file descriptor leak when IP address lookup fails.
Fix problem with running a server in "reverse" mode and detached -- only
apparent on Windows.
Add "maxconnections" to alleviate DoS attack.
Check for target port 0 to avoid DoS.
Linux 64-bit port (a result of the "Linux on POWER" contest) courtesy of
Stew Benedict . Use the "linux64" OS target.
Upgraded version of bzip2 and zlib.
