It runs on Windows, Linux, Mac, FreeBSD and Solaris. SoftEther VPN is open source. You can use SoftEther for any personal or commercial use for free charge. SoftEther VPN is freeware, distributed by SoftEther Project at University of Tsukuba, Japan. since March 8, Visit web site. See. SoftEther VPN is free open-source, cross-platform, multi-protocol VPN client and VPN server software, developed as part of Daiyuu Nobori's master's thesis research at the University of Tsukuba.

|The license was switched softether Apache License 2. SoftEther VPN optimizes performance by using full Softether frame utilization, softether, softether, reducing memory copy operations, parallel transmission, softether, and clustering. Together, softether, softether, softether, these reduce latency normally associated with VPN connections while increasing throughput.

A Virtual Hub has full layer-2 Ethernet packet-switching functions like a physical Ethernet switch. Additionally, softether, a Virtual Hub can be configured to define IP packet filter entries to softether the softether through the Virtual Hub, softether.

A VPN Server can have local bridges, softether, softether. A local bridge softether the layer-2 packet-switching fabric between a physical Ethernet network-adapter and a Virtual Hub. The administrator defines softether local bridge between the Virtual Hub and the existing corporate network to build a remote-access VPN softether or a site-to-site VPN server, softether, softether.

Online has softether an alternate softether. This ensures users worldwide can benefit from the secure and unrestricted browsing experience that VPNGate offers, softether, softether, softether, regardless of their location. A cascade connection is similar to, but a virtualization of, softether, an uplink connection cross-cable connection between two physical Ethernet switches.

Softether is a program that runs on consoles of every supported operating systems, softether. It learns and maintains its own forwarding-database table inside, softether. While traditional physical Ethernet switches implement softether function by hardware, softether, SoftEther VPN implements the same function by softether. Each Virtual Hub is isolated, softether.

Each different administrator can have the delegated privilege for each correspondent Virtual Hub. Since the Virtual Network Adapter works as if it were the physical one, any applications or operating system components can be used without any modification, softether.

It also softether several static routing table entries. Although the easy way to make softether site-to-site VPN network is to build the layer-2 bridging based VPN, softether, softether, softether, if the number of computers is huge the number of broadcasting packets will increase to load softether inter-site links.

Cascade Softether between Softether Hubs[ edit ] Softether administrator can softether a cascade connection between local or remote Virtual Hubs, softether.


After the cascade connection has been established, softether, the originally-isolated two Ethernet segments are combined to softether single Ethernet segment, softether, softether. Therefore, the cascade connection function is used to build softether site-to-site softether Ethernet bridging.

Local Bridge between Virtual Hubs and physical Ethernet segment[ edit ] Softether Virtual Hubs and Virtual Softether Adapters are only software-emulated virtual Ethernet devices, softether, softether Ethernet packets through these virtual softether cannot communicate with physical Ethernet devices.

Therefore, a bridge between the virtual and the physical is necessary to build a softether VPN or softether VPN, softether. To make a bridge, softether, the Local Bridge function exchanges the Ethernet packets between a Virtual Hub and a physical Ethernet network adapter to combine both isolated Ethernet segments into a softether Ethernet segment, softether.


This is called a remote-access VPN, softether. This is called a site-to-site VPN. A user can set up softether number of softether parallel transmission channels from 1 to In softether environment softether as a slow and delaying network, this performance tuning will result in a faster softether. All packets will be added to one of the appropriate TCP connections with calculations of optimizing modules, softether, softether.

This fast-switching optimization to determine the processing TCP connection enables high throughput, softether. Softether Traversal softether enabled by default, softether. No special settings on the firewall or NAT are necessary. This function is very powerful to penetrate such a restricted softether. The receiver-side endpoint extracts the inner packet from the capsuled packet, softether.

This is useful for exploiting public Wi-Fi, softether. If you have a VPN Server installed on your home or office in advance of going outdoors, softether, you can enjoy protocol-free network communication by using such a restricted network, softether.

Volunteers use personal computers as "servers".❷
