Virtual LAN alternative

Hi, I would really love to use VLAN, however it is not supported in my location yet.

Is there any better alternative than i.e. WireGuard full mesh?

So the Community can better help, can you clarify what is meant by better? i.e. Is the focus on:

  • Not needing extra software
  • Easy to configure
  • Automatic configuration
  • Security
  • Performance

By better I mean having performance close to L2 VLAN. I've considered both WireGuard and tinc, but I don't have experience with WireGuard running in full mesh (I've found some tools that can help with management), and tinc does not seem as performant as WireGuard.

I don't mind installing some more software or spend some time configuring it, if it will work properly. Some things can be automated via tools like Ansible, so if I spend some time figuring this out, it's okay by me if I know the result is going to work properly :)

I use ZeroTier on my servers.

@Tntdruid This looks great, will give it a try, thanks!
