Freelan is hosted on github. You may clone the project there on by using the git command line:
git clone git://github.com/freelan-developers/freelan-all.git
cd freelan-all git submodule init git submodule update
Freelan is composed of several projects. Namely:
libcryptoplus— A C++ wrapper around the OpenSSL cryptographic library.
libfscp— A library implementing the Freelan Secure Channel Protocol.
libasiotap— A extension library for Boost/Asio that adds support for virtual TAP adapters.
libfreelan— The main freelan library that glue all the other libraries together.
freelan— The main freelan binary, implemented as a Windows Service for Windows, and as a UNIX daemon for Linux/Mac OS.
freelan-buildtools— The build tools, as a set of Python scripts based on SConstruct.
All these libraries were written for Freelan but may be used independently in other projects. They are all licensed under the GPLv3 licence.
All projects provide a
README file which contains detailled installation instructions.
Basically, installing the build environment requires the following steps:
- Get the source, as described in the previous sections.
- Install one of the supported compilers:
Microsoft Visual Studio.
- Install Python and SConstruct.
- Install the freelan build tools so they are available from the command-line.
