A dummy subnet? Hmmm... where does that fit in?

Say my Windows box has a LAN-side ip of, and a dynamically
assigned Internet-side ip.
The Linux box is on the Internet side (port 23456/udp), and on the LAN side.

These routes are added by CIPE on the Linux-side:

Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use
Iface   *      UH    0      0        0
cipcb1   UG    0      0        0

Do I need to add routes on the Windows side?

I have a WIndows CIPE machine talking to a Linux one.  They will
interoperate, as long as you use a dummy subnet for the tunneled link
itself.  I see no reason why your arrangement won't work.  However, each
"client" will need to talk to a different server port, and you'll need a
separate CIPE interface for each connection.

Only problems I've have had have been related to bugs in Windows 2000
the Windows CIPE implementation.
