What is the default tun/tap max on a Fedora 1.0 kernel build?

True, but the real killer is the crypto selected; I have found
software-based triple-DES crippling on a lan or high-speed wan.
Requires  a hardware-based solution at BOTH ends in these environments.
This is one reason why I recommend AES for software-based crypto.
