[Openvpn-users] Mandrake 10.0/10.1

This is what I've found out so far with both Mandrake 10.0 and 10.1.

**10.0). The /dev/net/tun device is owned by root:root. Permissions on it are crw/r--/---
I get an openvpn error: /dev/net/tun permissions denied.


Changing the permissions on the tun to: crw/r--/rw- I get the following log entries:

Tue Sep 28 08:32:45 2004 us=821904 OPTIONS IMPORT: --ifconfig/up options modified
Tue Sep 28 08:32:45 2004 us=821942 OPTIONS IMPORT: route options modified
Tue Sep 28 08:32:45 2004 us=821971 OPTIONS IMPORT: --ip-win32 and/or --dhcp-option options modified
Tue Sep 28 08:32:45 2004 us=865181 TUN/TAP device tap0 opened
Tue Sep 28 08:32:45 2004 us=884883 Note: Cannot set tx queue length on tap0: Operation not permitted (errno=1)
Tue Sep 28 08:32:45 2004 us=884999 /sbin/ifconfig tap0 192.168.200.2 netmask 255.255.255.0 mtu 1500 broadcast 192.168.200.255
SIOCSIFADDR: Permission denied
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Permission denied
SIOCSIFNETMASK: Permission denied
SIOCSIFMTU: Operation not permitted
SIOCSIFBRDADDR: Permission denied
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Permission denied
Tue Sep 28 08:32:45 2004 us=892509 Linux ifconfig failed: shell command exited with error status: 255
Tue Sep 28 08:32:45 2004 us=892625 Exiting


Also, when trying to manually run chroot /etc/openvpn, I get:

   chroot cannot run '/bin/bash': no such file or directory.

**10.1).

Under Mandrake 10.1 it would seem that the /dev/net/tun is a link to ../tun
Permissions are:   lrw/rwx/rwx

Trying to run as chroot and nobody:nogroup works only if I run the start.sh script manually, running it as a startup script fails with the tun/tap not found error.

James,  any suggestions?

Doug
