Using cipe with protocol version 4, the cipe device cipdbX emulates an
Ethernet network device and should allow you to use bridge-software as used
for real ethernet devices (I hope).
for more on bridging (for a start).

Subject: bridging over the internet?
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?
