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.

Server running SuSE 9.3, client running Windows XP Pro. I have setup the server to accept incoming calls, this works and the client is authenticated. The server is setup with a LAN IP of 10.99.2.250 and in the appropriate options files <localIP>:<remoteIP> of 10.21.5.6:10.21.5.5.
Windows box (which at the end of development will be replaced with a router) is setup for a set IP of 10.21.5.5. The Windows box can dial in and get authenticated. If I do a route print on the win box I see a default gateway of 10.21.5.5 and I see 10.21.5.5 as my IP in ipconfig /all. So I think all looks good.
SuSE accepts the incoming call and I see the ppp0 interface in the ifconfig with inet addr:10.21.5.6 and P-t-P:10.21.5.5. When I do a route I see that default gateway is 10.21.5.5.
Now the problem is that I can not ping either way Server -> Win or Win -> Server. I can not ssh from win -> Server.
UPDATE: Well it appears that I CAN ping the server from the windows box. The connection is pretty bad but I can ping. However I can NOT ping the windows box from the server. So I am thinking that there may be an issue on the server side.
