Yeah, and in the comments people explain why this is a bad idea. Look, this is fairly easy to understand. TCP is a byte stream. It does not know about packets; if you read from it you get N of the bytes the other side has written, no matter in what chunks. TUN/TAP on the other hand is a packet interface. It doesn't understand partial or aggregated packets – it wants exactly one complete packet per write() call. It's like pouring multiple cups of water at a time through a funnel. If you pour slowly enough, each distinct chunk of water arrives at the other end so that you can distinguish the original amounts, but if you pour too fast or if there's an obstruction in the flow the distinction gets lost and you lose packets (or, worse, the receiver sees additional gibberish at their end). Just use ssf. It's a tool that's built to do the job right. socat is not, and it will not. -- -- Matthias Urlichs _______________________________________________ WireGuard mailing list WireGuard@lists.zx2c4.com https://lists.zx2c4.com/mailman/listinfo/wireguard
