Travis Build Status

TUN/TAP wrapper for Rust.

The TUN/TAP allows implementing a virtual network adapter in userspace. This provides the bindings for Rust.

Create an Iface object and send or recv packets. Making some sense of the packets is, however, out of scope, you need something else for that.

There's documentation and some examples.

Known issues

  • Tested only on Linux. Probably doesn't work anywhere else, but pull requests adding support for other OSes are welcome.
  • The asynchronous interface is very minimal and probably inefficient. It'll need to be extended to allow more flexible or efficient use.
