OnionCat creates a transparent IP layer on top of Tor hidden
services. It transparently transmits any kind of IP-based data
through the Tor network on a location hidden basis. You can think of
it as a point-to-multipoint VPN between hidden services.
OnionCat is a stand-alone application which runs in userland and is a
connector between Tor and the local OS. Any protocol based on IP,
such as UDP or TCP, can be transmitted.
OnionCat supports IPv6; native IPv4 forwarding, though still
available, is deprecated: the recommended solution for IPv4
forwarding is to build a IPv4-through-IPv6 tunnel through OnionCat.
