Welcome to the forum!
If you mean a rope that runs under the tarp, you don't need one. It will only abrade the fabric anyway. Use the rings and add 6-10 foot cords at either corner and tie it taut to the trees. HH hammocks are supposed to be hung from the hooks on the hammock suspension, but generally that results in the tension disappearing when you get in the hammock and change the angle of the ropes.
