VDE_TUNCTL(8)		    System Manager's Manual		 VDE_TUNCTL(8)

NAME
       vde_tunctl -- create and	manage persistent TUN/TAP interfaces

SYNOPSIS
       vde_tunctl [-f tun-clone-device]	 [-u owner]  [-t device-name]

       vde_tunctl [-f tun-clone-device]	-d device-name

DESCRIPTION
       vde_tunctl  allows  the	host sysadmin to preconfigure a	TUN/TAP	device
       for use by a particular user.  That user	may open and use  the  device,
       but may not change any aspects of the host side of the interface.

       vde_tunctl is a simple copy of tunctl done for practical	purposes.

USAGE
       To  create  an  interface  for  use by a	particular user, invoke	tunctl
       without the -d option:

       # vde_tunctl -u someuser
       Set 'tap0' persistent and owned by uid 500

       Then, configure the interface as	normal:

       # ifconfig tap0 192.168.0.254 up
       # route add -host 192.168.0.253 dev tap0
       # bash -c 'echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/tap0/proxy_arp'
       # arp -Ds 192.168.0.253 eth0 pub

       To delete the interface,	use the	-d option:

       # vde_tunctl -d tap0
       Set 'tap0' nonpersistent
