Openvz Enable TUN/TAP OpenVPN

Make sure the module "tun" is loaded on the host.

vzctl set 2000 --devnodes net/tun:rw --save

*Note what's below is what OpenVZ says you need (but I've never had to do it)


vzctl exec 2000 mkdir -p /dev/net
vzctl exec 2000 mknod /dev/net/tun c 10 200
vzctl exec 2000 chmod 600 /dev/net/tun

On the container test the device:

when Something is wrong:

cat /dev/net/tun
cat: /dev/net/tun: Permission denied


It's right and ready to use:

cat /dev/net/tun   
cat: /dev/net/tun: File descriptor in bad state

*remember again to make sure the "tun" module is loaded or it won't work and to add it to something like /etc/rc.local so it loads at boot time.
