yes, using normal TCP/IP.
The idea is that HIP is used when the applications employ special (IPv4
or IPv6) virtual addresses. If the application uses normal routable
IPv4/IPv6 addresses, then HIP is not being used.
The virtual addresses can be used directly in the application or you can
place them on /etc/hip/hosts or /etc/hosts files if you want to use DNS
addresses. Placing the virtual addresses to DNS is also possible.
