WARNING : This is probably a bad idea to use OpenVPN in a Jail (you will lose *a lot* of time to configure it) but it work's.

I really recommand to read the sources a the bottom of this articles, they were great help.

First things, prepare the host :

ifconfig tun create
echo 'cloned_interfaces="tun"' >> /etc/rc.conf

FreeBSD Jails

We will use ezjail to make it easier :

pkg install ezjail
ezjail-admin install

service ezjail start

Create your first jail and connect to it (we will NAT the jail in this example):

ezjail-admin create myjailname 'lo1|'
ezjail-admin start myjailname
ezjail-admin list
ezjail-admin console myjailname

Allow raw sockets (needed for ping, but not recommanded) by editing /usr/local/etc/ezjail/myjailname:

export jail_myjailname_parameters="allow.raw_sockets=1"

remember to modify theses lines in /etc/ntp.conf to avoid beeing a bot in a DDoS amplification attack :
