On my gateway I configured a tunnel device (tun0) and connected it with a remote host using OpenSSH. Ifconfig looks as follows:tun0: flags=8051<UP,POINTOPOINT,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 inet 10.254.254.1 --> 10.254.254.2 netmask 0xff000000 Opened by PID 4619I can ping or connect via ssh to 10.254.25.2 but I am unable to ping my own address (10.254.254.1). Is this supposed to work like that? Eventually I would like to have daemons listening only eg. on 10.254.254.1:80. How would I achieve this if I the machine doesen't even recognize 10.254.254.1 as it's own address.On the other side it's exactly otherwise arround, I can ping the gateway (?) but not the own address.Am I missing something important? Is this standard behavior for tun devices?Thanks.Warner
