I'm currently working on the 7.4. section which is still work in 
progress. Please apology if it's not clear enough...

Yes, I think you need to add a static route when you use a dedicated 
subnet for PPTP clients. In that case, use the PPTP server IP as the 

But if I remember well, when your PPTP clients use m0n0wall's WAN 
interface as their default gateway (default behavior on Windows and Mac 
OS X), you don't have to manually add a route because all your traffic 
passes through the PPTP link.

I hope I've made no mistake ;-)
