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.

I would really apriciate some help on this one. This is my setup:
VPN-Client (10.0.0.x) -- Router--External IP <----- Internet ------> Firewall -->MS VPN Server (192.38.76.x) ----------- Our network (All boxes have public ip's in the 192.38.76/88.0)
The connection to the VPN server (finally!!!) works. The problem is that if I:
# route add -net 188.8.131.52 netmask 255.255.255.0 dev ppp0
and try and ping i box in 192.38.76.XX, it seem to go into a loop were tons and tons of date is running through ppp0. (Quite cool actually!). I did notice some solutions on the pptp.sf.net homepage, but I can't figure out if they would apply to me..
How should I route after I start my connection, so that I can access the 192.38.76.XX network??
Here's my ipconfig ppp0:
ppp0 Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol
inet addr:184.108.40.206 P-t-P:220.127.116.11 Mask:255.255.255.255
UP POINTOPOINT RUNNING NOARP MULTICAST MTU:1400 Metric:1
RX packets:13 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:11 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:404 (404.0 b) TX bytes:338 (338.0 b)
After the connection my route looks like:
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
