I am using CIPE-Win32 2.0-pre15 on a Windows 2000 laptop. I run WinVNC
on the laptop and connect to it, via the VPN, from my Fedora Core 1
desktop system. (Instant docking station!)

the underlying network, and the service has crashed or hosed itself to
the point that a reboot was required on a couple of occassions. I

Also, is anyone maintaining CIPE-Win32? It doesn't seem to have been
updated in a *long* time.
