A VPN over WebSocket

Project description

Sizzler is a Linux tool, which sets up a virtual network interface on a computer, and transmit the data sent/received from it to another computer running the same program.

The transmission utilizes WebSocket, a common technology used in modern websites. Therefore all other technologies for optimizing WebSocket connections apply also for Sizzler: firewalls allowing WebSockets will also allow Sizzler connections; reverse proxies for accelerating accesses may also work.

The network interface set up by Sizzler behaves like a normal network interface. Since transmitted are IP packets, not only TCP but also UDP and ICMP are supported.

Sizzler is MIT licensed.

# Install

Use PyPI to install:

sudo pip3 install sizzler

# Usage

sizzler can be run in command line:

  • sizzler -h for help
  • sudo sizzler -c CONFIG_FILE, supply a config file in [YAML format][YAML] and start the program in client mode. Sizzler requires root priviledge! But it will drop that right after virtual network interface is set up and run.
  • sudo sizzler -s CONFIG_FILE, just like above, but in server mode.
  • sizzler -e will print an example config file to standard output.
