:Please accept my apologies as this is a newbie query
:. is the requirement of tunnel related to setup of a static
:tunnel IP for mail/web over a DSL connection ?
:. is the tunnel like GRE or IP/IP ?

    It is all invisible to end users (beyond potentially disrupting services
    for a little bit).  The DragonFly subnet is currently being tunneled
    over a cable modem instead of being directly routed over the DSL, so
    the DSL line can be worked on.  It's just PPTP with a few tricks to
    make normal MTUs work.

    The cable modem actually has better bandwidth and improved ping times
    over the DSL, but is a bit more fragile.
