Subject: Re: AW: Win32-cipe, is it also "server" (not just client)

Ok sensible enough,  now I need help figuring out the IP address 
assignments...

On the Win32 side you have 2 sets of 2 IPs:
LAN IP Settings:  Local and Peer,
PTP IP Settings:  Local and Peer.

Local IP Address:  This is where I set the incoming IP and port number 
for CIPE.  Do I set this IP to be the same IP as my only ethernet interface?

Peer IP Address:  I leave this unset for a dynamic host, right?  Do I 
also leave the port number unset?

The Local PTP IP gets set to the IP address I give to the CIPE 
interface, and can't be changed in the CIPE control panel.  I am 
assuming this is the address that traffic on the "local side" will 
appear to come from.  Does it get set to the same IP as my ethernet 
card?  Can it?

The Peer PTP IP is unset, is this where I assign an apparently local IP 
for the Peer to appear as?

So a little diagram to help me out...

Dynamic Host A                 Static Host B
internet user                  NAT'd firewalled server

IP:  0.0.0.0                    10.2.10.9 internally  67.96.X.X outside
CIPE Settings:
Local IP: 0.0.0.0 port 5000     10.2.10.9 port 5000
Peer IP: 67.96.X.X port 5000    0.0.0.0 port 5000
Local PTP: 10.2.10.20           10.2.10.9
Peer PTP: 10.2.10.9             10.2.10.20

Is this at all even close to how it should be setup for Win32?
