CIPE is a point-to-point network connection, and as such, has a netmask of
255.255.255.255 (/32).  Although you can conceptually consider it a
255.255.255.252 (/30) or even 255.255.255.254 (/31) network, it really isn't
-- It is simply two IP addresses.  You can make the IP addresses be from
different networks.
