Re: Missing TUN/TAP drivers?

Quick update: I looked around a bit, and found this out:

The "Add VPN connection" option in my context menu for the network is grayed out. And I can't import, in any way or form, the openVPN configs into the network manager.

Re: Missing TUN/TAP drivers?

Ah, another cog in the wheel, I guess that looks OK but I've never used a service like that. Understandable - I use it because it's free, and because my ISP has dynamic IP assignment on a lease. It's functional - as I said, it resolves to my latest home IP. I think you will find with a VPN there ar...

Re: Missing TUN/TAP drivers?

That is correct - though in the config, the gateway points to an address to a DDNS service that keeps my home IP updated. (remote mything.netgear.com *portgoeshere* - obviously a reference and not the actual address, but it's how the command goes). Though the way I understand it - isn't the gateway ...

Re: Missing TUN/TAP drivers?

Using the command "ip config" found in your second link, I looked at the routes made before and after launching OpenVPN. In neither state did that route pop up. Or am I misunderstanding what you are saying?

Re: Missing TUN/TAP drivers?

Couldn't find the network manager in Slacko, but I have a hunch it's not going to be compression or port since on Mint, the tap interface never even comes up in ifconfig OR the network manager. Meaning that unless I change the (currently found to be working on Slacko) config file, I couldn't even ch...

Re: Missing TUN/TAP drivers?

Thanks for the tip about iwconfig!

Yes, I can successfully ping my router without VPN, from the network I would connect to the VPN from, using the same address that's in my openvpn config.

Re: Missing TUN/TAP drivers?

All of my existing connections are already DHCP-enabled, and network manager does not show a TUN/TAP connection (only the ethernet port and the 2 wifi configs I use - home and college). Some extra searching brought up ifconfig - ifconfig also only shows three devices (Ethernet @ enpls0, what I assum...

Missing TUN/TAP drivers?

Running Mint Mate Sonya (18.2) x64 on an Acer Aspire One D257-13448. New install - only additional software installed is a few games, no software uninstalled. My router supports running an OpenVPN server, which I use to connect to a VM running at home (that I RDP into to give me some extra juice on ...
