Perhaps you have a look at the follwing url in advance:
http://www.openwrt.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=454

There are some hypercritical opinions about CIPE, i hadn´t enough time or i 
was 2 lazy to read this stuff up to now, but i will.

I currently have ~30 Linux2Linux tunnels with CIPE in production state 
without any technical problems or securitiy issues. The major prob with CIPE 
*IMHO*, that development of the win32 port really is dead, currently there is 
a major bug in W-XPSP2 which causes virtual interfaces to not show up in the 
device list. This makes it (or will make it shortly) unusable in some cases.

Thats why I´m planning to migrate all my current cipe tunnels to OpenVPN, 
last waterhole is a cheap hardware router for this XPSP2 cases, only because 
i believe this would be less work than moving the whole network to OpenVPN.

On the other hand, there are interconnections with another isp using cipe, 
which i can´t migrate anyway, so i will have to keep 2 different protocols 
running....

I´ll tell more next week, i gotta check this small router first.

\B.
