I do not exactly understand your problem.
I use a m0n0wall (WRAP platform) as a PPTP server for a class C network in
the class A address region (in other words, 10.0.0.x).
I use WinXP as a client, with the client machine sitting in a typical class
C network (192.168.x.x) together with a class C network in the class A range
(10.0.0.x via a gateway in the 192.168.x.x range).
Now, when I connect via PPTP to the remote network, I lose the ability to
access the local 10.0.0.x addresses. Obvious, since all 10.0.0.x traffic now
gets routed via PPTP and the m0n0wall to the remote network. If I cut the
PPTP connection, I regain access to the local 10.0.0.x addresses. Extremely
un-1337, that! And a bit inconvinient as well.
Luckily, the addresses which I wanted to access on the rmeote network did
not overlap with the addresses I needed to access on the local network. So I
simply typed something like "route -p add 10.0.0.x 192.168.x.x" (with the
local server address I wanted to access and the local gateway). In other
words, I created a static route and from that point on, I could access the
local server with the IP adress given to the route command while PPTP was
Well, I also could have changed the addresses of the network behind the
m0n0wall to another class C subnet (like 10.0.99.x), to get them out of the
way, but, hey, why choose the easy way?
Dunno if your problem related to routing tables, though. Perhaps you can
