Startup problems on Redhat 7.0|

Redhat 7.0 apparently includes cipe-1.4 in the distribution.
I'm starting to play with it, because we need to set up a VPN to a
new remote office sometime next month.
I'm having problems starting up ciped, however. Can anyone help?
lsmod shows me that cipcb is loaded. When I run the startup command,
I get the following:
# ./ciped start
Starting CIPE: opendev: SIOCSIFDSTADDR: Cannot assign requested address
CIPE daemon vers 20000702 (c) Olaf Titz 1996-2000
Using cipcb0 index 0
My options file is:
# The static key. Keep this file secret!
# The key is 128 bits in hexadecimal notation.
# You shouldn't have to modify anything past this point.
# The peer's IP address.
# Our CIPE device's IP address.
# Without a "device" line, the device is picked dynamically.
# My UDP address. Note: if you set port 0 here, the system will pick
# one and tell it to you via the ip-up script. Same holds for IP 0.0.0.0.
# ...and the UDP address we connect to. Of course no wildcards here.
The network topology for this test looks like:
cipe1 --- gate.here --- INTERNET --- gate.there --- cipe2
where cipe1 and cipe2 are behind their respective gateways/firewalls,
with the firewalls forwarding UDP 44444 to the cipe machines. cipe1
and cipe2 IPs are non-routable ones. cipe1 is 10.0.0.87 in this case.
I don't think the topology matters yet: the failure to start CIPE seems
to be more basic than that, since the debug message doesn't even set
the IPs I have in the options file.
Thanks for your help.
