Seemingly, all you'd need is a static route table entry on "Bill" to say that 
the gateway for the 172.16.1.x network is However, this business 
with the "tunnel failing" when route table entries are changed is pretty much 
unheard of. You don't show what the non CIPE (Ethernet, I guess) network 
addresses are, but it's my guess that when you are changing the routing table 
entries, you're somehow invalidating the traffic needed to implement the 
tunnel itself.

What happens when, without mucking with the routing table, the tunnel is 
enabled and you ping -> ?
