I've used CIPE for single point to point links and it worked well.
Now I have a VPN application where I have potentially 100's of remote
sites which could connect. The remote devices are small embedded
systems without a lot of resources.
At any one time only a handful will actually be connected but each will
have a different key.
I'm concidering writing a simple userland "cipe router" which will
terminate a cipe connection and then route packets to a local interface
Speed is not a huge issue so a userland app should work fine.
Has anyone done this already? Am I crazy to try? :-)
(n.b. I've written many userland packet routers so I know the concept
will work for my application; having said that I'm open to criticism of
