Is VPN (e.g. openVPN) via the TUN/TAP device supported in a VPS?

VPN support for a VPS via the TUN/TAP device is available on Linux VPS only. Please contact support if the device is not loaded in your VPS. The TUN/TAP devices cannot be supported on Windows VPS.

NOTE: Once we enable the TUN/TAP device, you will need to install the VPN software yourself. We do not install it or provide support for it as it is 3rd party. For OpenVPN, please see

For CentOS:
yum install openvpn
