I know about this possibility, but it's a shame that there won't be any
CIPE gateway machines on the client side. The client computers will be
spread around the country and they will have just generic access to the
internet. If there will be 2-3 clients in one location they will share the
CIPE tunnel but it won't be generally possible.
