Hi Sven,

Sorry, don´t know already, still preparing,
i´ll get the first router this late afternoon.

Why openssl ? As far as I know CIPE doesn´t need it.

I believe one of the major reasons to use CIPE on this kind of boxes _is_ low 
flashmem consumption.

My standard (production-, on LinuxPC-) configfile with comments & key is 
about 1K, on PC the kernel mod is 34k, the executable is 80k. That´s 10 times 
less than OpenVPN uses (see below).

Here´s a list of the precompiled bin modules i already found @ 

For Cipe:
b users  39481 Mar  4 09:11 cipe_1.6.0_mipsel.ipk
b users  23643 Mar  4 09:11 kmod-cipcb_2.4.20_mipsel.ipk

For OpenVPN:
b users 556171 Mar  4 09:12 libssl_0.9.7d-1_mipsel.ipk
b users   4747 Mar  4 09:13 kmod-tun_2.4.20-1_mipsel.ipk
b users 478786 Mar  4 09:13 openvpn-static_2.0rc13-1_mipsel.ipk

My openvpn (test-)config (On PC) without comments & required clients certs 
are about 12k.

If i won´t get it running properly up to Sunday, I will try to get openvpn 
(which needs openssl) running on this box.
