Private Networking Category (Software-Defined Networks)

Would there be interest in a category for tools that create software-defined networks/private VPNs? This has clear utility for people self-hosting other tools we recommend on local devices without requiring they expose their self-hosted services to the internet via port forwarding.


I personally use Tailscale myself for the record.


  • Weird software license
  • Not sure if mobile apps are open source? WebUI also is not but there are FOSS control plane GUI alternatives

I want to try ZeroTier and TailScale/Headscale for this exact purpose of sharing an internal network resource such as my LAN to the internet without actually exposing the home network to the whole internet. But real life is demanding a lot from me right now and I have yet the free time to fully explore it.
