    Default Tunnel Device in Backtrack 3

    Ok, I am trying to created a tunnel in backtrack, actually just make one with icmptx, the problem is I am running BT3 under VMWare on WinXP, and when I try the command:

    ./icmptx -d xx.xx.xx.xx it returns:
    "Cannot create tunnel device. Fatal."

    Is this a VMWare issue, or am I doing something wrong?
    If it helps I am using bridged networking within VMWare.

    Thanks in advance guys.


    MOD EDIT : Don't use stupid colours unnecessarily

    Yes your vm ware is not configured properly However I am not a vmware expert so I'm afraid i can't help. If I was doing it at home I could figure it out but in this situation it would be hard to trouble shoot.

    Try this before setting up your tunnel:

    modprobe tun
