Is there a TUN driver/kernel module for this NAS running with Entware?

Thanks

    The easiest way to get it running is to manually insmod the module with it's full path. Another option is (I think) to create a symlink /lib/modules which points to /opt/lib/modules, but that won't survive a reboot. (Nor does insmod, of course)
    This modules package was originally an ffp package, and I also provided a patched module-tools package which searched /ffp/lib/modules instead of /lib/modules. I repackaged the modules in an Entware ipk, but never created a module-tools ipk. (Which is in Entware-ng a lot more difficult than in ffp)

    When I remember well zyxel-modules-2.6.31.8_1_armv5soft.ipk has a tun.ko.

    Thanks Mijzelf,  you remembered well!
    So I installed this with sudo opkg install zyxel-modules-2.6.31.8_1_armv5soft.ipk  but modprobe tun returns not found in modules.dep.

    Looking around I can see the tun.ko module in /opt/lib/modules/2.6.31.8/kernel/drivers/net  and it is referenced in /opt/lib/modules/2.6.31.8/modules.dep   but clearly I am missing a step somewhere...

    For context I'm trying to get zerotier (or tailscale) to work on the box for emergency use but both fail so far as they can't see a tun module.

    Any help appreciated
