I've been running a http://tinc-vpn.org VPN for about 3 years now and lately came to the decision to improve my setup.
One thing I came across was that all my scripts were using
net-tools in their
tinc-down scripts, meaning commands such as
As I enjoy working with iproute2 it was time for me to make the switch.
#!/bin/sh # tinc-up ip tuntap add dev $INTERFACE mode tun ip addr add 10.0.0.1/24 dev $INTERFACE ip link set $INTERFACE up
And of course:
#!/bin/sh # tinc-down ip link set $INTERFACE down ip link delete dev $INTERFACE
And that's about it.
