Hi Paul,

Hrm.  Yes indeed.

Indeed on both points.

Hrm.  There are two documented but I have found use for only one so far.
It's an 8 bit network (i.e. a class A).

The remote (which is also my address) does in fact lie in the class A
which I'm statically routing, yes.  i.e.

tun0      Link encap:UNSPEC  HWaddr 00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00  
          inet addr:  P-t-P:  Mask:
          RX packets:147 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:115 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:500 
          RX bytes:120317 (117.4 KiB)  TX bytes:8356 (8.1 KiB)

The vpnc application is what creates the tun0 so I'm not sure how much
control I'd have over that.

Indeed, I don't.

My other computer is your Microsoft Windows server.
