TAP adapter in windows host

Post by TestAdapt » Wed Oct 11, 2023 10:55 am

Hello Community,

Is there a way to create a TAP adapter in Windows using the SoftEther ?
can you please guide me for that , I have used the SoftEther VPN Client Manager and I have created a a Virtual Network Adapter but this didn't solve the issue , cause while using QEMU , it is mentioning that the TAP couldn't be initilized.

Can you please guide me in order to reach to create a TAP adapter in windows ?

Thank you in advance for your support

If QEMU can initialize MLA then bridge it to the SE vNIC.

No Qemu cannot initialize Microsoft Loopback Adapter too.
I saw that with SoftEther there's a way to make a TAP adapter but still cannot reach out how can I make it.

You can create a tap device (virtual network interface) on the system and connect a bridge between Virtual Hubs (the tap device is only supported by Linux versions).
That's what you saw.
