Tonight I installed the pptp client from http://pptpclient.sourceforge.net.
I've got it all configured and to the point that I can authenticate to our corp MS VPN server. The issue that I have is that I can't seem to get data to flow over this pipe. If I ping a node on the far lan, I can see packets being sent, but nothing appears to be coming back. (yes, the node is alive, you'll just have to trust me on this one). I'm wondering if I have something wrong with routing either in the client or system-config-network.
As a last ditch effort I fired up ethereal, when I do a ping I see ppp traffic from the remote gateway back and forth to myself, which appears to be normal.
I'm tired. Please let me know if I'm being to vague or if you need more info. Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated.
