Bridge or virtual tunnel

I am using slackware 11.0 it is set up as a chillispot server. I am new to this setup and trying to figure it out. I am finding that google is not very informative on this subject or I am just not asking the right question. I do a ifconfig and have 4 interfaces eth0, eht1, lo, and tun0. I relize now that chillispot is creating this virtual tunnel interface, but I am not really positve why. Is this actually a bridge or a virtual tunnel and are those two totally different things. Is there any command in slackware that would show me what tun0 is connected to, I think it is connected to eth1 because this is my inside card, and eth0 is my outside card. Can someone clear this up for me?

Try posting the output of "ifconfig -a -v". It is possible that your chillispot server is automatically creating an IPv6-over-IPv4 tunnel.
