For a very special project, many hardware issues, unusual limitations, etc, I'm turning my ubuntu into an access point (temporarily) by sharing the Internet from one device to another. I found out that with the devices I'm using, this can't be done with the network manager.

I need to get the internet from a device called 'tun0', to my 'wlan0', so it can broadcast it as a very special access point.

I've read that there are ways to do this with the terminal. How would I go about doing this?
Thanks!

Somewhere (at work?) I have an article on bridging... but I'm not sure if it'll work with a tunnel.
