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:22.214.171.124 P-t-P:126.96.36.199 Mask:255.255.255.255

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.
