routing traffic from one interface to another


I access internet through PPTP VPN. I've managed myself to configure this connection according to docs from

The hardest part for me was routing. I make it work but I fear this solution would interfere with other network interfaces. Here's what I've done:

I've make script /etc/ppp/ip-up.d/<name of the tunnel>


route add -host <vpn-server's ip> dev $PRIMARY
route del default $PRIMARY
route add default dev $1
and another one /etc/ppp/ip-down.d/<name of the tunnel>


route del default $1
route add default dev $PRIMARY
Then I enable vpn connection with
pppd call <name of the tunnel>
Would these script run on activation of other interfaces?
