pptp /routing question


I setup a pptp server (poptop) and I'm wondering if I need to configure routing on it. Once I connect, I cannot ping anything; I can't even ping the vpn server. I disabled the firewalls on both sides.

any help would be appreciated.

thanks
edit: here's my config:

CONFIG FILES

Code:
/etc/pptpd.conf
localip 192.168.1.2
remoteip 192.168.1.10-50

/etc/ppp/options
debug
name 192.168.1.2
auth
require-mschap-v2
proxyarp

/etc/ppp/chap-secrets
billy       192.168.1.2     bob     *



SYSTEM SPECS
Code:
2.6.11-1.i369_FC4
Fedora Core 4 (Virtual Machine)
INSTALLED APPS
Code:
ppp-2.4.3-5.fc4
pptpd-1.3.3-1.fc4
dkms-2.0.13-1.rc4
kernel_ppp_mppe-1.0.2-3dkms

It connects fine but I just don't get any connectivity after that. I have mppe installed but not configured so I don't know if that's the problem

Make sure the ip numbers are in a different subnet from your local ip numbers..

eg if 192.168.1.x is local, use 192.168.2.x for the pptpd config..

Or, if the net you want to connect to has 192.168.0.x
make sure your local net is different.
