3 Installation

If you use Debian, you may want to install one of the precompiled packages for your system. These packages are equipped with system startup scripts and sample configurations.

If you cannot use one of the precompiled packages, or you want to compile tinc for yourself, you can use the source. The source is distributed under the GNU General Public License (GPL). Download the source from the download page.

Tinc comes in a convenient autoconf/automake package, which you can just treat the same as any other package. Which is just untar it, type ‘./configure’ and then ‘make’. More detailed instructions are in the file INSTALL, which is included in the source distribution.
