hi there,

i have a quite interesting thought in mind:

what if it were possible (is it?) to bridge two ethernets together via
cipe-tunnels?  kinda like this:

ethernet a --- cipebox a --- (internet) --- cipebox b --- ethernet b

is something like this possible?  rephrased:

can i add a cipe-interface and a normal ethernet-card to a bridge-group
on bot sides and expect the cipe tunnel to work?  (without ip addresses
configured on the cipe-interfaces, as bridging won't work that way)

this would seem to be like connecting to bridges in a row (which should
basically work with hardware-bridges), doesn't it?

any ideas, experience, suggestions?

\gf
