Hello,

I am looking for any pointers on getting VPNC up and running on my Gentoo PS3 installation. My wireless networking is functioning fine but I don't have the /dev/tun for some reason although I do have ssh installed. I think that I may need to recompile the kernel with CONFIG_TUN=y but I'm not sure about that and I'm not sure how to go about recompiling the kernel on the PS3. My attempts on Ubuntu on PS3 to install a newly compiled kernel never worked. I'd install it but when chosen in kboot they wouldn't boot.

I'm not quite a noobie on Gentoo (I have been running it on my desktop at work for a couple years) but would like to know if anyone has any howtos for recompiling the kernel on the PS3 and as a bonus for VPNC if that is even necessary.

Thanks,
Jason

Yes, you need the CONFIG_TUN option for vpnc. See the official HOWTO.
