Networking with ZeroTier
In this video, ZeroTier is introduced. ZeroTier allows you to easily configure software-defined networks, and communicate between devices regardless of their location.

Setting up ZeroTier
Set up account
Create an account at the ZeroTier website, which is required in order to use ZeroTier. Fill out the fields, and then create a network (as was shown in the video). You'll need a NetworkID to continue, which is provided after you create a network within the ZeroTier dashboard.
To use ZeroTier, you'll need to install the agent on each machine.
curl -s https://install.zerotier.com | sudo bash
Join a network
After the software is installed, you can join a node to the network by running:
sudo zerotier-cli join <network id>
Inside the ZeroTier dashboard, you'll need to accept the new node before it will start utilizing the service and get an IP.
After you add the new node, you should see a new network interface and it should have an IP address assigned to it:
ip addr show
Leaving the network
If you'd like to remove a node from a ZeroTier network, run the following command:
sudo zerotier-cli leave <network id>
