comment How can you force a Mac Pro's “Ethernet 2” link to UP, without a cable attached?
When i try that, i get cannot open at -e line 1. I tried creating a simple perl script, #!/usr/bin/perl system "ifconfig tun0 10.0.0.1 10.0.0.0 netmask 255.255.252.0"; but that gave me the familiar ifconfig: interface tun0 does not exist as you can read here, there are some serious issues with tuntap on os x that make it fundamentally difficult to implement and use reliably in the same ways as is done on regular linux.

I have tuntap (use it for miredo tunnels), but there is no tunctl on mac os x, so how is one supposed to bring UP a virtual interface? Even with OpenVPN installed, there doesn't seem to be a command to add a persistent vNIC at whim, and that sticks without a vpn conection active..

Botched that last post... Any scenario in which you may want to run multiple instances of a service - or type of service on the same port/ports, internal proxying, etc. Or a different way it rears it's head... TASK: I want to run a dns/dhcp/router/whatever on a VMWare guest. CASE: The WAN connection is a cable modem that issues DHCP lease based on MAC address ISSUE: It is not possible to allow the VMWare guest to "use" the port unless you "turn on" IPV4 addressing within Mac OS X, which will ultimately interfere with the ability to consistently acquire the WAN address from within the VM.

Here is one example... although not the one I had originally posted, it is also Valid.
