Welcome to the Free Peer eXchange project!

FreePeer eXchange is a project aimed at allowing a private network that rides on top of the existing internet for the purpose of learning.

This site is free to use and setup a tunnel on in which you can advertise your prefixes, manipulate BGP, host and access services on the network, etc. The goal is to provide a free means to learn routing protocols, tunneling, and networking in general. Registration is free and configuration aids are available to help kick start your connectivity; Get started today by clicking on the register link!

The items used for this project are virtual servers running Gentoo Linux, quagga for BGP/OSPF dynamic routing, and OpenNHRP for dynamic gre tunnels, links are below.
