VDE is a virtual network that can be spawned over a set of physical computers over the Internet. VDE connects together: (1) real GNU-linux boxes (tuntap) (2) virtual machines: UML-User Mode Linux, qemu, bochs, MPS. VDE can be used: - to create a general purpose tunnel (every protocol that runs on Ethernet can be put into the tunnel) - to connect a set of virtual machine to the Internet with no need of free access of tuntap - to support mobility: a VDE can stay interconnected despite of the change of virtual cables, i.e. the change of IP addresses and interface in the real world
Binary packages can be installed with the high-level tool pkgin (which can be installed with pkg_add) or pkg_add(1) (installed by default). The NetBSD packages collection is also designed to permit easy installation from source.
The pkg_admin audit command locates any installed package which has been mentioned in security advisories as having vulnerabilities.
