change name "shared client" and "participating tunnels"

this tunnel is shared by different clients, so it'S not a shared client, but a shared tunnel.

I guess it came about as we have server and client tunnels, and simply the adjective shared was added.
so a shared client tunnel is not a shared client kind of tunnel tunnel, but a shared kind of client tunnel
shared (client tunnel) instead of (shared client) tunnel.
we have
exploratory (tunnels)
server (tunnels)
client (tunnels) and those of them that are shared by different clients: shared client-tunnels

in the tunnel creation process you already chose client tunnel, so the word client is not needed in there no more.
so not this tunnel is a shared client or this tunnel uses a shared client, but simply, this tunnel is shared, which is why the ceckbox should only say "shared" and not "shared client".
The expalanatory text is good and should remain as is.

and then there is "Shared Clients" in sidepanel. this could give way for "shared" too. As long as we don't have server tunnels that are shared, no confusion can happen.

Furthermotre: on /tunnels
I'd advocate renaming "Participating tunnels" to "Participation", or "Participation of foreign tunnels", as those tunnels are not participating in anything. Rather is it us who participate in those tunnels.
So clearly participating here is not an a participle used wirh the function of an adjective - though mostly it is translated and mostly read that way. you could argue that it's a compound noun, but as a compount 'participation tunnel' would be synonymous, and equally well/bad.

in the sidepanel it's good the way it is, just not on /tunnels
only "Participating" or "Participation" or "Participation in foreign tunnels" or "foreign Tunnels" or "routed Tunnels" or "tunnels we route" or "tunnels we take part in" are all valid options and not too long for that title line.
"Inactive participating tunnels:" maybe change to "Participating in inactive tunnels:"
