Hi, I'm running SuSE linux with Openvpn Beta10 (kernel 2.4.20, SuSE 8.2).

I just thought I'd note this. I tried to run the client (not the server)
with the user and group parameters set. This did not work out. Instead I
got:


Aug 4 18:23:47 openvpn[4636]: Note: Cannot open TUN/TAP dev /dev/net/tun:
Permission denied (errno=13)
Aug 4 18:23:47 openvpn[4636]: Note: Attempting fallback to kernel 2.2
TUN/TAP interface
Aug 4 18:23:47 openvpn[4636]: Cannot open TUN/TAP dev /dev/tap0: Operation
not permitted (errno=1)


Commenting out the user and group params solved this issue. I'm not sure was
wrong. I tried to create a simple openvpn user and group and run openvpn as
that uid/gid, but that didn't help.

well, what are the permissions of /dev /dev/net /dev/net/tun

if the user and group you made can not see it, it doesnt work.
