Package: nstx
Version: 1.1-beta6-4
Severity: wishlist

It would rock if nstx provided a way to (re)name the interface. For
instance, on systems with OpenVPN installed, it will otherwise
depend on startup order which daemon gets tun0 and which gets tun1.
It would rock if nstx could just rename the tun* interface it gets
to 'nstxd'.

iproute can do this btw:

  ip link set tun0 name nstxd

so this could be realised in the init.d script iff iproute were
installed and nstxd would communicate which interface it actually

A better way would be to pass the desired name to nstxd at startup
and have it pass an ifreq struct with ifr_name set to the TUNSETIFF
ioctl. It should then also report which interface actually got used.
