A dummy subnet? Hmmm... where does that fit in? Say my Windows box has a LAN-side ip of 192.168.158.1, and a dynamically assigned Internet-side ip. The Linux box is 188.8.131.52 on the Internet side (port 23456/udp), and 192.168.0.1 on the LAN side. These routes are added by CIPE on the Linux-side: Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface 192.168.158.1 * 255.255.255.255 UH 0 0 0 cipcb1 192.168.158.0 192.168.158.1 255.255.255.0 UG 0 0 0 cipcb1 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 and/or the Windows CIPE implementation.
