Using openvpn with a Proxmox LXC Container


It took me a while to find this through various forums, so I'll document it here to make it easier to find.

Add this line to your containers config file (e.g. /etc/pve/lxc/100.conf):

lxc.mount.entry: /dev/net dev/net none bind,create=dir

Then connect to the vpn using openvpn directions (e.g. openvpn yourvpn.conf)
