tun0 interface only useable by root

Post by GNUGradyn » Thu May 06, 2021 4:59 pm

If I do `curl ipinfo.io --interface tun0`, it will hang forever. but if I do `sudo curl ipinfo.io --interface tun0`, it will work as expected. How can i make tun0 useable by non root users?

Sounds like a curl bug .. I believe you should get EACCES
