Hi Cedar,

Thank you for answering.
I know CIPE: it's a very good program, but the problem is that actually it 
works only on win2000 platform. I have many customers using win98 boxes as 
clients, and they don't want to make micro$oft more rich upgrading a lot of 
licenses to win2000 .
Althoug i understand that to write a tunnelling layer protocol we need to 
work at packet-protocol level, and maybe it is difficult, and/or dangerous 
to do this on win95-98 o.s': Anyway, waiting for the IPSEC standard, i hope 
that there is a solution for this problem: ODBC postgres SQL driver, sends 
clear text passwords and data on lan segment, and in some cases it can be 
very dangerous (sniffing a-go-go).

Best Regards,
