I want to install OpenVPN Server on my Raspberry Pi 2, following the same steps I used in a virtual machine running Ubuntu 19.10
Ubuntu works fine, but Raspberry goes on error during the installation of TUN driver.

Here are my steps:
- install TUN driver with this script. I had to add on Raspberry Pi:

sudo apt install raspberrypi-kernel-headers

It seems to work, but if I list the interfaces with:


I don't see the tun0 interface, while on Ubuntu I see it. reboot didn't solve it.

Here are some details:

  • Raspberry Pi 2 model B
  • Raspbian Buster (release date 2020-02-13, Kernel version: 4.19)

Anyone can help me?

  • sudo ip tuntap add dev tun0 mode tun – Dougie Mar 26 '20 at 18:28

  • @goldilocks - no deprecation message that I can see – Jaromanda X Mar 26 '20 at 21:59
  • Please delete your duplicate question on Stack Overflow. – Rob Mar 27 '20 at 12:41
  • @JaromandaX Oh yeah! Debian does not have that; wikipedia notes "many Linux distributions have deprecated...", not all. My bad, thanks. – goldilocks Mar 27 '20 at 13:43
