    Trying to get OPENVPN working on my rooted atrix - any one have this working ???

    I have installed OpenVPN on serveral windows machines to verify my tunnel works. Also successfully installed OpenVPN using the OpenVPN installer off of the Market. Also installed OpenVPN GUI, and OpenVPN Settings to try to manage the tunnels. I am getting an error with the TUN module:

    Looks like the TUN/TAP device is either missing or is not where OpenVPN is looking for it on my phone.

    Any suggestions ?

    Thanks,

    You need the TUN or TAP kernel module loaded on the Atrix.

    In theory, it is possible to load such a module into the Atrix Kernel.

    Altought, Motorola does not provide the kernel source or headers to compile the TUN or TAP module to load into the Atrix.

    This has done before on the Motorola Droid by some kind of hack that i'm not sure.

    If you can find a tun.ko or tap.ko module to load into the Atrix, OpenVPN should run just fine.

    If you find, please post it here, i also want it.
