Subject: Multiple CIPE interfaces on one server?

Hi all,

I have a problem that I hope someone may be able to guide me through. I have
a RedHat Linux 6.2 (kernel 2.2.16-22) server that's running MySQL. I need to
have secure connections between this DB server and other web servers.

Now, I have successfully set up a CIPE connection between my DB server and
another similarly spec'ed Linux web server, using cipe-1.4snap-1 RPM
packages from RedHat.

But, now I wish to connect a Windows NT4 Workstation for DB admin purposes.
So, I set up NT4 with CIPE-Win32 version 2.0-pre6. I think I've configured
it all correctly, but it wouldn't start up properly and I couldn't ping the
DB server.

However, I realised that probably wasn't the problem - the primary problem
was that of setting up my DB server to support multiple CIPE tunnels! I only
have one configured. How can I use two (or more)?

I can see no clear way of setting up two connections using the config files
and init script included in the RH package. I could start two CIPE daemons
by hand, but I need them to be started as soon as the server is running (and
continue as long as it is up).

Can anyone offer any solutions for this situation?
