Subject: Startup problems on Redhat 7.0
From: Cheng-Jih Chen <cjc,AT,cjc,DOT,org>

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
key=(secret)
debug=yes
ipaddr=0.0.0.0
ptpaddr=0.0.0.0
mtu=0
metric=0
me=10.0.0.87:9999
peer=0.0.0.0:9999
device=(none)
nokey=no
socks=
tokxc=0
tokey=0
ipup=(none)
ipdown=(none)
arg=(none)
cttl=0
maxerr=-1
tokxts=0
ping=0
toping=0
dynip=no
Using cipcb0 index 0
[FAILED]

My options file is:

# The static key. Keep this file secret!
# The key is 128 bits in hexadecimal notation.
key             (key)

# You shouldn't have to modify anything past this point.

# The peer's IP address.
ptpaddr         192.168.2.1
# Our CIPE device's IP address.
ipaddr          192.168.1.1

maxerr          -1
# Without a "device" line, the device is picked dynamically.
#device         cipcb0

# 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.
me              cipe1.cipe.box:4444
# ...and the UDP address we connect to. Of course no wildcards here.
peer            gate.there.box:4444

debug 3

The network topology for this test looks like:

  10.0.0.1                                            10.2.0.1
  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.
