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 am using VPN connection to get into another LAN which is 12000 miles away. Quite obvious.
Now, that far LAN uses its IP address schemes like 192.168.54.xx, 192.168.55.xx, 192.168.56.xx, 192.168.57.xx, 192.168.58.xx, 192.168.59.xx .
When I start my Cisco VPN client. I am able to ping 192.168.54.xx, 192.168.55.xx, 192.168.56.xx BUT I am not able to ping 192.168.57.xx, 192.168.58.xx, 192.168.59.xx.
So, what I am doing is first of all I log into some machine sa 192.168.54.3 and then from there 192.168.58.1. And I can do it quite successfully.
Now, logically I should be able to do it DIRECTLY as well. Since sometimes if 192.168.54.3 goes down, I am like screwed up.
But, I am not sure how to do this. What I tried is like adding route manually to Routing Table. But It dint help.
Few commands output... It may help understanding prob better.
