Thank you, that's great but the link above is broken. Well, I installed that program and followed the instructions it gives me. Now the tun0 interface is open, but it has no IP associated. I'm stuck here. Do I have to use the DHCP client? (Tried it, but it configures the tunnel from IP 0.0.0.0 to 255.255.255.255) I have no clue what to do next. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
