Subject Re: Replication and security advice sought

I was just writing an answer when the vpn suggestion came up. I think using Tink would be
a nice approach:

You can also build a meshed VPN with tink, so you get failover as well. Tink does automatically
restart, the virtual nics can be bridged to inside networks if needed.

Kind regards,

whilst I am a pretty good application developer, my networking knowledge generally and proxy

explain the details of any suggestions in detail at a "put this line in this file" type level
I would be eternally grateful.
