NOS-TUN(8)                BSD System Manager's Manual               NOS-TUN(8)

     nos-tun -- implement ``nos'' or ``ka9q'' style IP over IP tunnel

     nos-tun -t tunnel -s source -d destination -p protocol_number target

     The nos-tun utility is used to establish an nos style tunnel, (also known
     as ka9q or IP-IP tunnel) using a tun(4) kernel interface.

     Tunnel is the name of the tunnel device /dev/tun0 for example.

     Source and destination are the addresses used on the tunnel device.  If
     you configure the tunnel against a cisco router, use a netmask of
     ``'' on the cisco.  This is because the tunnel is a point-
     to-point interface in the FreeBSD end, a concept cisco doesn't really

     Protocol number sets tunnel mode.  Original KA9Q NOS uses 94 but many
     people use 4 on the worldwide backbone of ampr.org.

     Target is the address of the remote tunnel device, this must match the
     source address set on the remote end.

     This end, a FreeBSD box on address

           nos-tun -t /dev/tun0 -s -d

     Remote cisco on address

           interface tunnel 0
           ip address
           tunnel mode nos
           tunnel destination
           tunnel source

     We don't allow for setting our source address for multihomed machines.
