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 --> netmask 0xff000000         Opened by PID 4619I can ping or connect via ssh to but I am unable to ping my own address (  Is this supposed to work like that? Eventually I would like to have daemons listening only eg. on How would I achieve this if I the machine doesen't even recognize 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
