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.
- Tunngle 188.8.131.52 is an hotfix release for those members that had problems connecting to games when using Windows XP.
