How to add Tun/TAP/PPP/Fuse support

NOTE: This is for new Openvz/LXC plans only.

1. You need to login to web panel and click the Active Product you want to enable it on
2. If you see "Add Tun" button, click it (if not, it is already enabled), then continue to #3 below,
3. click Stop VPS button in web panel <----- DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP!!!
4. Click Start VPS
5. SSH to your VPS and type

mkdir /dev/net
mknod /dev/net/tun c 10 200
chmod 0666 /dev/net/tun
ip tuntap add mode tap
--show it
ip link

For PPP:

mknod -m 666 /dev/ppp c 108 0
service pptp restart

To actually use a tun/tap device it must be created inside the container on every boot, so add the following to your /etc/rc.local inside your container:

if ! [ -c /dev/net/tun ]; then
mkdir -p /dev/net
mknod -m 666 /dev/net/tun c 10 200
fi
