7 Invitations

Invitations are an easy way to add new nodes to an existing VPN. Invitations can be created on an existing node using the tinc invite command, which generates a relatively short URL which can be given to someone else, who uses the tinc join command to automatically set up tinc so it can connect to the inviting node. The next sections describe how invitations actually work, and how to further automate the invitations.
