If it is routing or gateway related setup how it could be done? I have tried your ping program. This is just a guess as I don’t know anything about VMWare player,. Your phone OpenVPN client should take care of the client parts automatically. I also have ip forwarding on, and i set promiscious mode on the interface as well though I dont think I need that.

What it means is that the simpletun endpoints are connected over TCP, but of course what they do is just relaying back and forth data coming from the programs that use the “VPN”. For kernel it’s indication that Ethernet frames with destination IP address ranges from This page was made for the simple fact that one virtualization solution doesn’t always “cut the mustard”.

Debian Lenny Tun/Tap Bridge Setup

The kernel determines whether the packet is valid, and whether it has to be delivered locally or routed. Skip to content Home About Feed.

This is not the same as bridging the local tu/tap interface, and the virtual machines will only be accessible from the host system. Which means that the serverMachine should be see-able by the tap-right.

No problem here, just wanted to say thank you for this brilliant tutorial. From your conversation with Irek, it seems that tap considers these packets as tun/tal packets and sends to wire, instead of pushing them up in the network stack.


I have a tun which I use to forward packets to some other nodes there is not a tunnel among them. January tunt/ap, at How do I do that if i set it persistently from outside the app?

By setting the physical ports up in promiscuous mode, and clearing all routes and IP addresses ifconfig flush ethXand instead assigning those routes and IP addresses to the tapX devices, then I have a situation where I can read every packet coming in the physical interface using RAW socketswrite them to the TAP interface, and Vice versa. Anyway, although I don’t see the point in reading packets from tun and writing them back again, if you change even a single bit you have to recalculate all the relevant checksums.

Then, you may want to copy the interface name into the provided string, so the caller can see which name was chosen by the kernel if it was asked to do so:. What is the ssh command you’re using to connect?

Debian Lenny Tun/Tap Bridge Setup

I am not aware of anybody doing any work in this direction. When I run a ping6, I see the echo reply and write it to the tun; the kernel increments bytes rx’d on the tun etc. That said, Tun/ta; don’t know of any workaround, short of deban a simple stub program can even be much simpler than simpletun whose only purpose in life is debiann keep the tun interface “connected” for the duration of the capture or whatever you are doing with it.

I’ve tried to make the instructions as accurate as possible, but that doesn’t mean that they are. You’ll also want to run the server parts of the “Forward traffic via VPN” steps below. Do I need to change the format?


That way, if you attach an application to the descriptor corresponding to tun1, that debbian should receive the packets that the kernel routes out tun1. You can start it up with a command similar to the one in the script above. I see the correct number of bytes. No physical interface is added to the bridge.

June 10, at Let’s create a persistent interface and assign it an IP address:.

You may also test with ping. Although netstat shows a tun interface joins the ff Yes that is what I need as architecture.

So in effect or so it seems I do not think I am over running any queues. I have a situation whereby kernel version 2. I ttun/tap the packet buffer to a txt file and expect to at least see a length field at the specified place. When a tun interface receives a packet, it’s like a normal phisical ethernet interface receiving a packet.

It is not simple as that. Alternatively, the interface can be made persistent, as explained, and in that case it will survive program termination.
