The VPN problem may be simply due to qemu's use of NAT. I would suggest you familiarise yourself with any NAT/firewall issues for your VPN before switching to tap. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
