        CIPE works quite well with an enpoint being a single host, rather
than an entire network. I often use my laptop (running Linux) to connect
over the Internet to my LAN. I believe that fits within your definition.

        Though I am not personally looking to use any Win98 clients for
the same purpose (I only answered your question as to why someone might
want to). However, if it does become possible to run CIPE on a Win98
endpoint, then I might have some clients that would be very interested.
