Hi,

im trying to configure a virtual point to point link using the tunnel interface in linux.  Im having a bit of difficultly putting it all together and have not found a definitive guide anywhere on the web.  All i see is links to VTUN.

How do i do it?  I have /dev/net/tun on my system.  How does that translate into tun0?

Im confused.

Any help is appreciated,

David.
