Switches are part of the VPN elements of ToMaTo. They allow to connect devices with each other in virtual private networks.
Hence connected elements are isolated from other elements or the internet as long as they are not connected to each other (or the internet).
Currently there are 3 types of switches available:
- Hub: Incoming packets will be broadcasted to all connected devices. It uses Tinc VPN to connect elements with each other.
- Switch (Tinc): Forwards packets targeted to a specific port. It also uses Tinc VPN.
- Switch (VpnCloud): Forwards packets targeted to a specific port. It uses VpnCloud, a UDP-based VPN solution.
