Simply, CIPE acts as a transparent direct connection as if two ethernet
adapters were physically attached to each other.  Usually, broadcast traffic
is not sent across segments in this fashion, whether they are over CIPE or
over a physical adapter.  I don't have the details, but I know CIPE for
Linux supports ethernet bridging.  However, I do not believe this has been
supported for Win32 - DKW would know.

I doubt this helps, but it might be something for others to comment on.
