When you first run ppp you may need to deal with some initial configura-
o Your kernel must include a tunnel device (the GENERIC kernel includes
one by default). If it doesn't, or if you require more than one tun
interface, you'll need to rebuild your kernel with the following line
in your kernel configuration file:
pseudo-device tun N
where N is the maximum number of PPP connections you wish to support.
o Check your /dev directory for the tunnel device entries /dev/tunN,
where `N' represents the number of the tun device, starting at zero.
If they don't exist, you can create them by running "sh ./MAKEDEV
tunN". This will create tun devices 0 through N.
pseudo devices are long gone, and I believe the number of instances as well.
MAKEDEV is also not needed when devfs is used, AFAICT.
Have a ppp guru read over the man page.
