I am not sure. Maybe you have to assign an address first and later assign
"0.0.0.0". Or maybe not. In the first case you need probably also the
ifconfig keyword in your options file.

Note that for protocol 4 the cipe device is _not_ cipcbX, _but_ cipdbX
Configure with --enable-protocol=4

You have to join the ethX and cipdbX devices. The CIPE manual (section 2.2)
states that it is "possible to make the CIPE device part of an Ethernet
bridge..", so it must be possible.
The same for both sides of the tunnel.

Except for different device-naming configuration doesn't differ much..

I am not aware of a cipe specific document on ethernet bridging.
So if you get it working, it would help others if you write down al steps
required in a CIPE-ETHERNET-BRIDGE.HOWTO..
