Hm, I'm reading in the announcement:
* Add support for tunneling arbitrary network packets over a
connection between an OpenSSH client and server via tun(4) virtual
network interfaces. This allows the use of OpenSSH (4.3+) to create
a true VPN between the client and server providing real network
connectivity at layer 2 or 3. This feature is experimental and is
currently supported on OpenBSD, Linux, NetBSD (IPv4 only) and
FreeBSD. Other operating systems with tun/tap interface capability
may be added in future portable OpenSSH releases. Please refer to
the README.tun file in the source distribution for further details
and usage examples.
Getting this work on Dfly would be neat...
