This category lists articles about MyCrypNet (tutorials, explanations…).
If you want to install a MyCrypNet service here are the tutorials for the main operating systems:
More informations on how to install and help are available here.

What MyCrypNet is useful for ?
With a MyCrypNet network you can create your own network between your devices even if they are not geographically close to one another.
For instance, you can have a computer in Paris and be in London with your smartphone.
By installing a MyCrypnet access on your computer and one on your smartphone you create a MyCrypNet network between them.
They can now share informations, files, printers, scanners, webcams… very easily.
Here is an example on how to install a MyCrypNet network between 3 devices.
A more adaptable network
A MyCrypNet network can be delegated to multiple users and their devices. That way you can create a more complex network to share data with your friends or colleagues.
Let’s assume you are in a distant country, New York for instance, and you need to accede to a very private file available on a computer owned by your friend in Geneva. How will you make the file travel to you securely and privately?
Use your MyCrypNet network and delegate one of your MyCrypNet access to your friend. The MyCrypNet access will appear on your friend’s interface.
Once the MyCrypNet access installed on your friend computer, the file can be easily shared by multiple techniques.
Here is an example of how to share files through MyCrypNet.
Here is the tutorial on how to install the delegation.
Some points must be clarified in order to understand how a sharing works.
Difference between users and devices
The MyCrypNet access ensures the authentication of a device on a MyCrypNet network, it does not ensure the authentication of a user.
In order to share files, you must also have a way to authenticate the user who uses the MyCrypNet access.
SMB provides a way to authenticate users.
Difference between files sharing servers and clients
A file sharing made by SMB is a client/server architecture.
Some devices will store, check the authentication and distribute the files over the MyCrypNet network through their MyCrypNet access. They are the files sharing servers.
Some devices will just ask for a file through their MyCrypNet access over the MyCrypNet network and send the credentials needed for the files server to check the user identity. They are the files sharing clients.
The uppercase names below have to be replaced with the corresponding values.
|OFFICE-DESKTOP||It is the remote domain name of a MyCrypNet access set up with a files sharing server. It is the name of the access available on the management interface.|
|ALICE||It is the name of the user who has to be identified by SMB in order to access the files sharing server. No whitespace is allowed.|
|ALICE-PASSWORD||It is the password of the user who has to be identified by SMB in order to access the files sharing server.|
|USERS-GROUP||It is the group of users having permissions to access your SMB share. No whitespace is allowed.|
|BOB||It is the name of a second user who has to be identified by SMB in order to access the files sharing server. No whitespace is allowed.|
|SHARE-NAME||It is the name of the SMB configuration in the files sharing server. It is used to differentiate multiple SMB configurations on a same server. No whitespace is allowed.|
|FOLDER-PATH||It is the internal path of the folder that is shared via SMB through the MyCrypNet network.|
How to install a files sharing in a MyCrypNet network
If you want to install a files sharing server on a device connected to your (or one you receive a delegation from) MyCrypNet network, you can follow these tutorials:
If you want to install a files sharing client on a device connected to your (or one you receive a delegation from) MyCrypNet network, you can follow these tutorials:
