Yes, CIPE will work fine for you. It is easiest when both sides have static
IP addresses, simple when one side has a static IP address, and difficult
(but possible) if both sides have dynamic IP addresses. If you have a
dynamic IP address, simply use address 0.0.0.0 in place of the IP address.
If both sides have dynamic IP addresses, then you need some way outside of
CIPE for one side to determine the IP address of the other side. I have
never done this but others on this list have.
You did not mention which Linux distribution (if any) you are using. RedHat
(and maybe others) provide the software in an easy-to-install form;
otherwise you will need to compile and install CIPE yourself.
The ipaddr and ptpaddr addresses are assigned by you, typically from
10.0.0.0/8, 172.16.0.0/12 or 192.168.0.0/16 address ranges (see RFC 1918),
or using a spare IP address from the LAN on each side. The ipaddr on one
side must match the ptpaddr on the other side.
If you use a program (tcpdump, for example) to view the packets going over
ppp0, you should see that the data is encrypted. Don't look at cipcb0, as
this is the "tunnel": data before encryption or after decryption. For
