UNMS Raspberry Pi Remote Nodes

A remote node that can be put on a routed segment to have access to the broadcast domain for packet sniffing, proxying for UNMs to fix issues like incorrect subnet settings preventing devices from talking to UNMs. You name it. It would show up in UNMs and have remote terminal support, web proxy, ect...

I really love this idea too. I have toyed with the idea of placing a TAP VPN on such a segment, but latency of the VPN would contribute to metrics being higher than actuality. An added benefit would be if the proxy had it's own internal datastore so that if connection to the Master UNMS server was down, data would still be harvested and sync'ed when the connection was restored.

I would, however, recommend a broader support than just Pi's. Would be great if the smaller cloud key would run this proxy app too.
