The whole permission model for openvpn on Windows has been funky at best "forever" - open tap device and setup IPv4 address by means of DHCP could be done "by everyone", while installing routes or setting up IPv6 then failed for non-Admin accounts... I'm not exactly sure what you are proposing, but aligning this with wintun and using the service to get access to tap6-windows sounds like a reasonable plan. With a registry key to re-enable "full access as today", for compat reasons. gert -- "If was one thing all people took for granted, was conviction that if you feed honest figures into a computer, honest figures come out.
