Setting up Nettica Tunnel and Relay Services


Our containerized services provide building blocks for your virtual private network. We make it easy to get the services you need without having to sign up with a cloud provider. Tunnel service provides an endpoint in the given region and all traffic is sent through the tunnel. Relay service is exactly the same, but only traffic destined for the given subnet is routed through the relay, not all traffic. This makes it easy to configure a relay to connect to hard-to-reach servers sitting behind a carrier-grade NAT. It also makes it easy to collaborate or build out automation.


Premium and Professional customers automatically have relay and tunnel services enabled on their account. In addition, we’ve added a new “Relay Service” product to provide a lower-cost solution. After purchasing the service on this website, you can continue to the Nettica Admin to configure it.


Click on the “Services” tab in the Nettica Admin and you’ll see your newly purchased subscription.

Next, download and install the Nettica Agent for Windows, or Debian and Fedora Linux.

Once installed, log in, and click “Add Network”:

Nettica Agent Adding a network

Pick a name for your host and join the network you just created when adding the service. Note that the public endpoint and listen port can be left empty in this scenario. After a few seconds, the network will install and immediately begin routing traffic through the service.

Congratulations, you have configured your tunnel service! Note that to disable routing through the service, use the switch in the Nettica Agent to disable it. Otherwise, it’s always on.
