Cent Os IP Tunnel

We have one real datacenter which we anounce our ip blocks and AS number in izmir and we have a virtual datacenter in istanbul which other datacenter anounce our ip addresses    (2 x /24 class)

for some reason we want to use the some ip addresses (for ex 185.xx.xx.2 and 185.xx.xx.5) in izmir (which is actually anounced by the datacenter in istanbul)

we decide to install 2 cent os and create an ip tunnel but could not figure it out how to do it.

should some body help us ?

note : we do not have any layer 3 equiqment in istanbul

GRE is another possibility.
But why the resentment against IPSEC / OpenVPN.

EOIP is microtik's name for GRE VPN - old unencrypted style.
Normal processor core of today will do couple of gigagbits AES256. There is no sane reason to prefer dinosaur droppings to modern protocol with integrated security.
