History

#1 Updated by Chris Buechler over 4 years ago

  • Subject changed from Create Interface Virtual Pfsense 2.2 Alpha not available to tun/tap interfaces not available for assignment in 2.2
  • Category set to Interfaces
  • Target version set to 2.2
  • Affected Version set to 2.2

tun and tap interfaces should be available for assignment, whether tunX/tapX or ovpnsX/ovpncX.

#2 Updated by Jim Pingle over 4 years ago

The OpenVPN interfaces do appear for assignment in current code.

For interfaces made outside of OpenVPN:
tunX interfaces do not appear for assignment
tapX interfaces DO appear for assignment

So it appears to be partially fixed.

I do not think this is a good option to allow.

Since whoever creates the tun needs to provide a sticky interface name and tunX its not a stable one.

I do not consider a thing to be allowed.

the original issue here was that OpenVPN's tun interfaces weren't being added at all at the time. the remainder is a non-issue
