VPN Issues. pptpd (Centos) / mpd5 (freebsd)


I am trying to configure a vpn server and client for myself. I have gotten the vpn to work and I can connect via windows and everything works fine. My assumption is that the pptpd is configured correctly because of this. The Software for the vpn server is Centos 6.2 using pptpd. I have a freebsd 9.0 server where i would like to route all outgoing traffic through the vpn. The problem is that while the bsd machine connects to the vpn and registers an ip address on the vpn, and I can ping and connect to the vpn server via ssh (and vice versa) I cannot connect to anything else on the internet when I route traffic through the vpn. I am guessing I have a configuration error in mpd but after a lot of research, google, etc i still cannot figure out whats wrong.

so my question's are, is my configuration wrong and how can i change the default route or automatically route the traffic through the vpn. mpd.conf for bsd client

probably you will need to "route" the traffic
- another example
- quick config of two gateways

good luck
