Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

site number 1(server)
I have a lan behind a fc8 firwall/proxy/vpn server
This lan ip range is 192.168.10.x/255.255.255.0
the vpn ip range is 192.168.0.x/255.255.255.255
If i connect to the vpn on my windows client (via internet) every thing works fine. i can connect to shares on the lan and use applications to run orders and invoices.
This tells me the server side is correct.
Site 2 (client)
this lan has ip range 10.0.0.x/255.255.255.0
the fc8 pptp-client does connect sucessfully.
but i cannot see any of the lan clients on the server site.
At the end of the day i need to have Both lan's working asif they were on the same network.
so that windows clients (site2) can connect to windows clients (site 1) on any port tunneling through the vpn, and vise versa.
by the way i cannot ping the LAN ethernet adapter on the server side from the fc8 pptp client.
I know that it is a firwall issue on the client side but my skills have a bit to be desired.
The proxy/gateway on the client side still needs to work once the vpn works so we cannot forward all requests to the ppp1 connection.
once that is right do i need to have a wins server on either side of the vpn or just one on the server side ?
