Virtual PPP Interface IP Addressing scheme recommendation

I am looking for recommendations on IP Addressing schemes for configuring the virtual PPP interface on a PTP T1 on 2 ADTRAN Netvanta 3430's.  I'd like to know how close I can get it to coordinate with the Ethernet IP's.  

For instance I have an eth 0/1 ip of 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0 on corp side.
Then I have an eth 0/1 ip off 192.168.3.1 255.255.255.0 on branch side.

What is the recommended virt. ppp ip addresses?

Can it be 192.168.1.2 on the 1.1 side and 192.168.3.2 on the 3.1 side??
Or does it have to be something different?

Thanks!!

You would need to use a new subnet between the two routers like 192.168.100.0 with a mask of 255.255.255.252. That  allows you just the 192.168.100.1 and 192.168.100.2 host addresses but that is all you need.
