Both the tun and the tap parts of the driver work fine. They have  
been extensively tested by many people with the Mac OpenVPN client  
Tunnelblick (http://tunnelblick.net ). If you're looking for an easy  
to use OpenVPN client, Tunnelblick might be right for you as it  
includes the latest (and known to be working) tun/tap driver and puts  
an icon in the menubar from where you can connect and disconnect  
OpenVPN connections.
