 Subject:  VPN over WiFi ? (file/print sharing) (VPN/m0n0wall n00b.... be gentle)
 Date:  Mon, 23 Jan 2006 21:07:00 -0800

this is what i wanna do,

I have a m0n0wall box w/ 3 nics (WAN / LAN /OPT1)
I want to have my LAN (wired pc's) on LAN interface utilizing 192.168.0.xx
I want to have my wireless AP (linksys BEFW11S4) on OPTI1 (192.168.2.xx)
I want a PPTP VPN conection from OPT1 to the LAN 192.168.0.
and I want file / printsharing to work over said VPN

So far I have messed w/ setting up the PPTP connection and have gotten 
it to work (except shared network resouces ..printers documents are not 

If i bridge the OPT1 to the LAN then i can get the PPTP connection to 
work / with file sharing ...etc..    but (and sorry in advance for 
n00bery ) but what is the only advantage to doing that way (bridged)the 
traffic is encrypted via the PPTP connection (i.e. web surfing on the 
Wifi would be somewhat safer?) but the AP is still a security risk to 
the rest of the LAN right?

i have read all through the faq and can't figure it out...

anyway if anyone could help me figure out how to make the above 
happen... or if it's not possible that's kewl too...

if it helps make the answer easier..

the Wireless clients run Windows 2000

on the LAN the machines are WinXP and 2k + a win2k Domain Controller.

thank you
