Zebedee tunnel application for android

This package ports Zebedee code (jzbd java version) to the Android platform (all android versions since 2.1 to at least 4.4).

Zebedee is a simple program to establish an encrypted, compressed "tunnel" for TCP/IP or UDP data transfer between two systems. This allows traffic such as telnet, ftp and X to be protected from snooping as well as potentially gaining performance over low-bandwidth networks from compression. (As stated on its web.)
