could this be a solution : implement a tun or vtun device ?
Quote :
Tunnel, Encapsulation
Private networks are layered over the public Internet by 'encapsulating' the 
private data inside of ordinary TCP/IP packets. This flow of packets between 
two endpoints looks like a 'tunnel' connecting the two endpoints: this is 
because once the encapsulation has been stripped off, it looks like the two 
endpoints are right next to each other, without any intervening, bothersome 
Internet in the middle. Anything that's networkable can be tunneled: One can 
tunnel NetBIOS (the Microsoft file/printer-sharing protocol), Novel Netware, 
IPv6, SCSI, or even plain-old IPv4 over IPv4. A 'tunnel' does not imply that 
the data is encrypted, although you usually want it to be.
