I have been attempting to access our non-profit VPN with Puppylinux Lupu 5.25 with openvpn 2.0 installed and open SSL 1.0 installed.

as you can see from the graphic display it connect, but fails in establishing the command

ip link set dev tap0 up mtu 1500

I see that the ip is part of the terminal command set. Additionally i see in puppy that in /bin that ip program is symbolically linked to busybox which I presume invokes the terminal command of ip when it is invoked.

In the response script in the openvpn connection I see that it invokes the command with /bin link set ...

In the puppy directory I see that there are two bin directories.
/bin and ~/bin. Should I symbolically link busybox to the ~/bin directory which is empty on my computer? Would this directly invoke the ip command that
openvpn seeks?

thanks.

Dont know anything about this VPN thing .

If you downloaded all the vpn stuff and installed it correctly, it probably needs also to install the FULL ip binary package .

Busybox ip may have different syntax and or internal commands .

file /bin/ip
/bin/ip: symbolic link to `busybox'

Reading the manual page for /bin/ip i tried this :
Code:
ip link show

which gave me
Quote:
1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 16436 qdisc noqueue
link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
2: eth77: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 qdisc noop qlen 1000
link/ether 00:23:ae:62:26:44 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
4: ppp0: <POINTOPOINT,MULTICAST,NOARP,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast qlen 3
link/ppp


The man ip i have installed shows this Syntax :

ip [ OPTIONS ] OBJECT { COMMAND | help }

where

OPTIONS :=
{
−V[ersion] |
−s[tatistics] |
−r[esolve] |
−f[amily]
{
inet |
inet6 |
ipx |
dnet |
link
}
|
−o[neline]
}

whereas (1.19.4)busybox ip shows this Options Syntax :

OPTIONS :=
{
-f[amily]
{
inet |
inet6 |
link
}
|
-o[neline]
}

#

About /root/.usr and /root/.bin : seems to be a shortcut for the user to access these directories faster if "Show hidden files" enabled in rox), not used by any programs .

Thanks for the reply, it illuminates an unknown area of Linux for me.
