pptp vpn configuration question


Hi,
Ive been trying unsuccesfully to setup a vpn connection from home (suse 8.1 behind linksys firewall) to office (running windows 2000 RAS server behind netscreen firewall that had forwarding turned on for RAS requests)

I cannot seem to get the configuration right - wanted to know if anyone had done something like this before

HOME NETWORK - 192.168.2.X
WORK INTERNAL NETWORK - 192.168.1.X
WORK EXTERNAL IP ADDRESS - 60.1.1.1 (number not real number)
LINKSYS FIREWALL ON HOME NETWORK ACTS AS GATEWAY - 192.168.2.1
RAS WINDOWS SERVER ON WORK NETWORKS ACTS AS DHCP/WINS Server - 192.168.1.2
GATEWAY ON WORK NETWORK IS 192.168.1.1 - RUNNING NETSCREEN FIREWALL configured to forward all RAS/PPTP requests to the RAS server.

my challenge is how to use pptp-config setup to define the correct configuration as I have a network translation on the home end and on the remote end.

Below is what I have tried (and has not worked)
dd a NEW PPTP Tunnel.

1.) Other
Which configuration would you like to use?: 1
Tunnel Name: vpn
Server IP: 60.1.1.1
What route(s) would you like to add when the tunnel comes up?
This is usually a route to your internal network behind the PPTP server.
You can use TUNNEL_DEV and DEF_GW as in /etc/pptp.d/ config file
TUNNEL_DEV is replaced by the device of the tunnel interface.
DEF_GW is replaced by the existing default gateway.
The syntax to use is the same as the route(8) command.
Enter a blank line to stop.
route: add -host VPNSERVER gw 192.168.2.1
route: add -net 60.1.1.1 ppp0
route:

**** WHERE DO I ADD THE EXTRA TRANSLATION THAT THE REMOTE WORK FIREWALL IS DOING OF 60.1.1.1 to 192.168.1.X?

Thanks
ALex
