SubjectRe: virtual ethernet adapter?
from what I can tell, tap just lets a programs use it, but one needs a
user space app behind it (reading and writing to it). It doesn't seem
to have the ability to live on the network like vmware's vmnet stuff
does, perhaps I'm wrong and was confused by the web page.
