Why would a linux pptp server give out a loopback subnet mask


Why would SME 5.6 serverís pptp server give out a loopback subnet mask of 255.255.255.255. When I was playing around with SME 6.0 this seemed to limit the pptp server to only allow one user at a remote location behind a router using nat to map a network drive. If one person mapped the drive the other couldnít even ping the server with the shares on it. Will this happen with 5.6 or was that just a 6.0 bug. If it is related to the subnet mask and is there a way to change it to a 255.255.255.0 one.

Thanks

What is SME? And you can set the loopback subnet to 255.0.0.0 and that would cover it.
