OpenVPN & OS 10.4
Authored by: mizraith on Aug 16, '06 05:37:48PM
Ouch.... how is it that I always get tripped up with 1 yard to go.
1) Got openVPN via darwin ports (sudo port install openvpn2) which was a fight given that the "lzo2" module was not available in it's normal place.
2) Set everything up verbatim to the instructions (CA authority, certs/keys, etc).
3) Made minimal mods to the example server.conf file provided with openVPN (pointed it to the CA cert/key files).
4) Attempted to launch openvpn with sudo ./openvpn2 /etc/openvpn/server.conf
5) THIS FAILS with:
Wed Aug 16 17:29:32 2006 us=455504 Cannot allocate TUN/TAP dev dynamically
Wed Aug 16 17:29:32 2006 us=455691 Exiting

Now...this same failure appears to turn up on the openVPN discussion group. I am running an Intel MacMini with latest OS 10.4. I did all the openVPN installation with sudo. I've dorked around with the server.conf file, but this doesn't help that problem. I've set dev tun0 and it changed the error message to: Wed Aug 16 17:36:56 2006 us=288472 Cannot open TUN/TAP dev /dev/tun0: No such file or directory (errno=2).
