A library to create Linux TUN/TAP interfaces
The library currently allows the opening of a TUN/TAP interface in either TUN or TAP mode and keeps track of the interface name and its file descriptor. It provides two utility functions tun-up! and tun-mac which bring the interface up and return the interface MAC address respectively.
Note: the library assumes the presence of the "/dev/net/tun" device file. See https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/networking/tuntap.txt.
defstruct lolevel socket
- make-tun #!optional (mode 'tun) (pi #f)procedure
returns a tun/tap interface. The mode argument can be 'tun for a tunnel interface or 'tap for a tap interface. When the argument pi is #t we do not send the IFF_NO_PI flag and the interface includes packet information (four bytes) when reading every packet or frame
- tun-fd tunprocedure
returns the file descriptor associated with the tunnel interface. Writing to this file descriptor sends data out of the interface. Note that written data must be well-formed packet (for tun) or ethernet frame (for tap).
returns the name of the TUN/TAP interface. Available after running make-tun
- tun-mac tunprocedure
returns the MAC address associated with a TUN or TAP interface as a list of 6 integers
(define tap (make-tun 'tap)) ; creates a TUN/TAP interface in tap mode (tun-up! tun) ; brings interface up (print "MAC address: " (tun-mac tap)) (use posix ethernet) (let* ((pr (file-read fd size)) (buf (car pr)) (n (cadr pr))) (with-input-from-string (string-take buf n) (read-ethernet-frame))) ; reads an ethernet frame from TAP interface
