Just a remark to prevent setting suid: I setup my tap0 device so that
in can be used by my user ID like follows in /etc/rc.local on Ubuntu.
# Setup tap device for base-linux tests
user=<YOUR USER ID>
ip tuntap add dev $dev mode tap user $user
ip address flush dev $dev
ip address add 10.0.2.1/24 brd 10.0.2.255 dev $dev
ip link set dev $dev addr 02:00:00:ca:fe:01
ip link set dev $dev up
But now to your question...

If you mean you can't see any listening program on port 8888 on your
host machine that's expected. Genode is running in a virtual network
behind the tap0 device. Additionally, the log states that the
tcp_terminal uses DHCP for network configuration but you may not run a
DHCP server on tap0. Now you have two option: Configure a DHCP server
to serve a private network behind tap, e.g., 10.0.2.1/24, or (much
simpler) configure tcp_terminal statically. Therefore you apply the
following changes to the run script (assuming the example network
- <libc stdout="/dev/log">
+ <libc ip_addr="10.0.2.55" netmask="255.255.255.0" gateway="10.0.2.1"
+ stdout="/dev/log" stderr="/dev/log"/>
The terminal should then be accessible at 10.0.2.55:8888.
