I am connecting wirelessly to my Soekris 4521 wireless OPT1 interface
from my laptop (Fedora Core 2).
I then connect using PPTP [http://pptpclient.sourceforge.net/], I
configure it to point to my 'external' WAN IP address. Everything seems
to work fine. I know I am going through the PPTP interface because I
have full external connectivity. If I just connect to wirelessly
without using the PPTP client I see only connections that I have allows
for in the firewall rules for the OPT1 interface.
I don't have another wireless client available at the moment to sniff
traffic, but I want to be sure traffic is really encrypted over the PPTP
tunnel, based on the above info, is it? Am I following the right
procedure above or can/should I be doing something different or better?
