I would like something state-less. I see L2TPv3 has support for
unmanaged tunnels, but they still require tunnel id and session id
what (if I assume that they have to be unique) makes it useless for
our case. We have (if I simplify) a star-shaped topology with a
central server in the middle. To the central server WiFi nodes
(hundreds of them) connect. But we do not really want to require from
a central server to know each WiFi node and prepare its tunnel
endpoint for each node. We would just like that there would be virtual
interface and UDP port and any packet send to the UDP port would be
decapsulated and output through that virtual interface. The only thing
which we would have to make sure is that each WiFi node has a virtual
interface with unique MAC address.
