This package is for doing fantastic things with your XBee device. You can, of course, already use it as a serial replacement, so you can run PPP and UUCP across it. XBee radios are low-cost, long-range, low-speed devices; with bitrates from 10Kbps to 250Kbps, they can reach many miles using simple antennas and low cost.

With xbnet, you can also run Ethernet across it. Or ZModem. Or TCP/IP (IPv4 and IPv6). SPX if you want? I guess so. SSH? Of course!

This is tested with the XBee SX modules, but ought to work with any modern XBee module.

XBee devices are particularly interesting because of their self-healing mesh (DigiMesh) technology. They will auto-route traffic to the destination, via intermediate hops if necessary. They also support bitrates high enough for a TCP stack, with nearly the range of LoRA.

This is a followup to, and fork of, my lorapipe project, which is something similar for LoRA radios.
