I decribed the steps (re-read that post)

1st) bring up tap0 with static IP address (I did mention how to adopt
/etc/network/interfaces to control tap0 interface)

sudo ifup tap0
ifconfig tap0

You must see a static IP for tap0.

and only then 2nd) you have to bring up dhcpd on tap0 again as was
decribed there.
