I tried the above, so my routing table on Windoze does
not have a default route directly to the router,
it only has default route to the 10.248.126.80 ( my PPTP address),
and it is also listed as Default Gateway....
And then, you know how water penetrates a basement
through the walls...but it takes time....same thing here....
I turned on a bunch of Logs in the F/W Rules, and I THINK
I can see the packets coming from the tunnel out to the WAN.
For the archives, this is what it looks like.
Coming out of the tunnel, looking for the WAN Router
^ 23:51:47.624992 ng1 10.248.126.80 188.8.131.52 ICMP
Coming out of the WAN, for the WAN Router
^ 23:51:47.625332 WAN 184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11 ICMP
From the WAN Router, looking for the tunnel
(with m0n0wall doing the return-trip NAT automagically:-)
^ 23:51:47.626105 WAN 18.104.22.168 10.248.126.80 ICMP
The next one is unclear, but I am going to assume this is
reporting what's happening inside the tunnel:
^ 23:51:47.626339 ng1 22.214.171.124 10.248.126.80 ICMP
So, short of snooping the airwaves, I am fairly confident
that the traffic is being protected.....
The only remaining question is, for windows "geeks", can I
re-establish the routes just the way they are (aren't, actually)?
i.e., delete the 0.0.0.0 10.248.127.1 gateway route
(almost immediately when the tunnel comes up)
Thanks to all who helped - and to anyone else who can answer
the last question....
