    Easy to use and fun to see how you're able to connect to the other side of the world in less than a second. It works fine with Ubuntu 12.04, though it gives an error if you're using vpn. Hope it will be fixed in the near future.

    Great program! I couldn't find any free or commercial apps that work nearly as well and are as visually interesting.

    I would love this, but I cannot get it to work on Windows 7 32-bit. Have WinPCap installed and no success.
