Description William Shuman 2015-01-07 17:56:37 UTC
When I connect to our Juniper SSL vpn, I can not do anything.  Let me know if you need anymore information.

e0b46d0ee9c240c7430a47e9b0365674d4a04522 is the first bad commit

    tun: Use iovec iterators
    This patch removes the use of skb_copy_datagram_const_iovec in
    favour of the iovec iterator-based skb_copy_datagram_iter.

I tried at suggested changeset (8c847d254146d32c86574a1b16923ff91bb784dd) but I was still getting no traffic through vpn.

the following patch from net-next resolved the issue for me.

Subject: tun: return proper error code from tun_do_read

Instead of -1 with EAGAIN, read on a O_NONBLOCK tun fd will return 0.  This
fixes this by properly returning the error code from __skb_recv_datagram.

I just wanted to note that I was having the same problem in Ubuntu 15.04.  I upgraded to the (currently) proposed 3.19.0-17-generic kernel and the Juniper SSL client is now working as expected.
