I cannot seem to create a tun device using ifconfig, even though the module is loaded, and the node tun is present in /dev/net and appears to have correct access permissions, trying to use nstx which requires the tun device. Only thing I can think of is adding an alias, but not sure where, since there is no /etc/modprobe.conf or /etc/modules.conf in SUSE 11.3. Under a time limit so any ideas would be VERY helpful and appreciated. Thank You.
Thank you for the prompt reply, but I can’t even run ifconfig without sudo, ie, “sudo /sbin/ifconfig tun0” results in “no such device” or “device not found” errors…like I said, the module is loaded and /dev/net/tun exists, tun is loaded as a startup module via /etc/sysconfig “modules loaded on boot” I’ve tried all kinds of variations of the above command, such as “sudo /sbin/ifconfig tun0 10.0.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.255 point-to-point 10.0.0.2 mtu 512” no change, what else could it be?!
