Tunngle is a p2p VPN especially designed for online gaming.

Do you like playing games like Call of Duty, Minecraft and Portal 2 online? Well, you’re in luck, because this is precisely what Tunngle is designed for.

Tunngle is based on registering and joining the Tunngle community. This is free, but a little complicated. Once you have the program downloaded and your passwords and usernames sorted out, you can sign in and participate in various chat rooms, share files and, of course, join games.

The Tunngle interface is the default red and black. It makes things a little hard to read - as does the small font - but skins are also available. The various parts of the program are displayed in tab-like sections across the top of the window. You can access the online Tunngle features here (news, downloads, etc.), as well as actually using it as a VPN.

To share files over Tunngle with friends, they'll have to sign up too, but once they have, it's as easy as starting a private chat with them (using the Messenger icon in the top right corner), right-clicking and choosing Tunngle Shares.

If you fancy gaming with Tunngle, you can search for a particular network or view all games via Community > Networks > Browser. Once you've found one you like, just double click and you're in. There is a chat function throughout Tunngle and, of course, there are online FAQs and forums. If you have a look around the web, you’ll also find plenty of Tunngle tutorials.

The fact that you must sign up to use the program will be off-putting for certain VPN users, but for those who are interested in playing games against friends - or strangers - Tunngle's an interesting new alternative.

Tunngle is a free VPN made especially for gamers.

Changes

  • Tunngle 4.3.2.2 is an hotfix release for those members that had problems connecting to games when using Windows XP.

Free virtual private network (VPN) software to extend local area network (LAN)

Tunngle is free virtual private network (VPN) software and allows any interested parties to extend their local area network (LAN) to include computers at remote locations around the world. It is a secure network that behaves like a LAN when it comes to hosting and joining multi-player games that support a local network style of game play. Your LAN party options are no longer limited to the one room or building.

What is Tunngle?

Tunngle is a revolutionary peer to peer VPN solution that delivers the best online entertainment experience.

What is so special about Tunngle?

Tunngle connects:

Skip the troubleshooting work and focus on the entertainment. Tunngle virtual networks are the ideal place to play PC games with your friends over the internet, while enjoying all the commodities of a Local Area Network party.

Making new friends is easy: enjoy some relaxed talk in the Tunngle lobby or jump into some game network and start playing. Having fun together is always the best way to make new friends.

Of course, if you love discretion, you can also enjoy private direct chats with your friends after or before playing some game.

Tunngle creates freedom:

Safely share your personal files with your friends using Tunngle Shares. You can choose what and to whom. You will always be in control of the sharing permissions (read, write or none).

Tunngle uses its own protocol for the file transfers and protects your computer by actively blocking the Windows file transfer ports. You will be the only one that decides what is to be shared and what is not.

Tunngle protects your privacy:

Tunngle connections are anonymous and highly encrypted allowing the secure usage of all the provided services. Nobody except for the recipient will be able to see the type and the contents of your connections.

You will safely enjoy the best entertainment experience under the Tunngle protective shield.

Tunngle will always be improved and enhanced.

    "Adware, still better than Hamachi"

    Ignore any logos or seals claiming this isn't adware. It's not a virus but the interface does contain a large banner ad,... More.
