I've moved all CIPE links to use openvpn (see below).

Probibly true, but keep in mind you would have to make a new module
for every errata kernel that is released.

I would think so.
I would like to offer another suggestion. How about transitioning all
your machines to use openvpn instead?
It's secure, don't in userspace with tun or tap device, works on all
the various redhat versions, there is even a windows version.
Just need to compile and install the openvpn rpm on all your machines
and switch the CIPE links to openvpn links.
It's way easier to mange and setup than IPSEC, and doesn't require
Just a suggestion.
