From reading the source, net/if_tun.c, I get the impression that tun is a cloning device. Like tap. (The word clone appears several times) But for tap this is mentioned in the manual, and MAKEDEV creates a /dev/tap (next to /dev/tap[0-3]). But not for tun, when it seems it could be. Any particular reason for this? If they were both cloning it would remove a nagging inconsistency and be much nicer for virtual machine emulators. -Olaf. -- ___ Olaf 'Rhialto' Seibert -- The Doctor: No, 'eureka' is Greek for \X/ rhialto/at/xs4all.nl -- 'this bath is too hot.'
