Description Lubomir Kundrak 2008-02-22 17:05:18 EST

Description: Create and remove virtual network interfaces

Virtual network interface manipulation tool from User Mode Linux project.

Since some kernel version write privilegies on /dev/net/tun are not sufficient
for an unprivileged user to create virtual network interfaces. Thus they need to
be precreated by root, but no tool for this exists in Fedora but openvpn.
Comment 1 Marek Mahut 2008-03-25 16:15:51 EDT
The package looks sane, but please move the binary to %{_sbindir} as it can be
used only by root.
