Vendors/Products The Tunneler is a graphical interface compatible with multiple platforms (Win, OSX, Linux) which creates an encrypted channel or “tunnel� between your computer and the Metropipe proxy servers throughout the world. Once installed, your web browsing and all internet activities that you send through it are encrypted between your machine and Metropipe, leaving your machine anonymous. This protects you from the many prying eyes out there. The ‘Tunneler’ is controlled by its own application, a simple program that gives you the freedom to turn it On and Off as you please, and automatically configures your web browsers (Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox) proxies.

The perfect companion for the Tunneler is the ‘Privacy Toolbar’. This is specifically for Mozilla Firefox users who are tired of digging around in ‘Preferences' menus or editing complicated configuration settings. It’s developed for Metropipe customers but usable for anyone who is concerned about privacy and security while surfing the net. It allows you to easily disable cookies, javascript, cache, images, referrer, and IDN Exploit Fix, along with faking your browser type. These are just a few of the features offered. The ‘Tunneler’ is not required to use this tool and it’s free to download.
