OpenBSD 3.6 stable - OpenVPN 2.0 rc6

OpenBSD comes with layer 2 capability and it is switched on with a simple ifconifg command, however, I'm having a problem getting OVPN attaching to layer 2 without the "named" TAP interface.
I had hoped that OpenVPN would be able to detect the layer 2 capability.

I had a patch supplied to me a couple of days ago for the OBSD openvpn
1.6 port
which applied correctly but still comes up seeking the TAP device as
defined in the config. TUN0 of course works fine.

Perhaps it can and I am missing a config setting. Anyone else using
3.6 as an OpenVPN server that can help or set me straight. The
preference is to use OpenVPN 2rc6.


You can use the "dev-type" directive to ensure that OpenVPN will use your tap style tun0 device correctly. I'm succesfully using OpenBSD 3.6 and OpenVPN 2.0rc6 for an ethernet bridge VPN setup at the moment using this config:

dev             tun0
dev-type        tap
mode            server
tls-auth        hmac.pem
dh              dh1024.pem
pkcs12          waggie.p12
crl-verify      crl.pem
