How do I enable TUN/TAP?

All of our VPS nodes have TUN/TAP support enabled. All you need to do is enable it on your VPS, which can be done using the below steps:

  1. Select your VPS from the Services tab (screenshot)
  2. Click on Login to SolusVM VPS Control Panel » (screenshot)
  3. Click on the Settings tab under Controls
  4. Click on the dropdown icon below TUN/TAP and select On (screenshot)

You’re all done. TUN/TAP support will now be enabled.

You can verify this by logging in to your VPS via SSH and running the below command, which indicates that it is working correctly.

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