I have given those permissions to the tun device (see below).  Should it not be possible for nobody to open a new tun interface?  I have
created this tun file with mknod inside /etc/openvpn/dev/net (the chroot jail is /etc/openvpn).

# ls -lhR dev/
dev/:
total 0
drwxrwxr-x 2 root root 16 2007-08-21 11:54 net

dev/net:
total 0
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 10, 200 2007-04-17 07:20 tun


thanks
Pierre
