[..] How do i start cipe at boot ?
Any supported device that has an ifcfg-<device> file in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts containing the line

ONBOOT=yes

will be started at boot (through /etc/rc.d/init.d/network). To manually enable the device, type

ifup <device>

to disable it, type

ifdown <device>

Since the first cipe device is normally called cipcb0, you need to provide /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-cipcb0. An example is given in /usr/share/doc/cipe-1.4.5/samples/redhat-ifcfg-cipcb0.

In addition to a simple eth0 device, cipe reads option settings from /etc/cipe/options.<device>. Since this option file normally contains the key, it must be private to root (mode 600). An example is given in /usr/share/doc/cipe-1.4.5/samples/redhat-options.cipcb0. Other useful entries are

maxerr -1

to prevent cipe from aborting after 8 errors and

dynip

when you are dealing with dynamic IP addresses.

Hope this helps.

Carsten Emde.
