hello again,

Made some changes and am seeing progress,  but could still use a little
hand-holding. We have the cipe interface coming up on the Win2000 laptop and
configured on the Linux host on the same subnet. When we start the interface 
the Win2000 box, we see a "new peer" on the Linux host for that connection.
Typically, we're home free at this point. But, here's what happens:

When looking at the "sent" and "received" counters via the Status of the 
Modem card and the Cipe device, we see only increments on the Modem Card. The
Cipe device remains at 0 sent, 0 received despite explicit attempted use of 
Cipe connection. Is that to be expected?

Pings from the Linux hosts to the local IP address are seen to increment the
"received" counter of the Modem Card, but (again) not the Cipe device. The 
tunnel must be being used or the Linux hosts wouldn't know where that IP 
was. However, the Win2000 box doesn't respond to the ping. Pings from Win2000 
Linux don't seem to increment any "sent" counters so I'm not sure they are
leaving the laptop. Nonetheless, we did see that "new peer" message on the 
side and it was what we were expecting.

Finally, in configuring the Cipe device, we left the Gateway field blank. We
didn't want to use the Mobile Modem card as that address is dynamic. Could 
be our trouble?

I'm open to all critiques or advice. Many thanks again to Mr. Wilson for
