 Re: Please help with pppd (routing)

It's been a long time since I used ppp, and my ppp.conf i used to have got blown away... but maybe I can add some insight.

It looks like your thunderlan device on your client (tl0) is on the same ip net as the ppp tunnel. The net covers the range of to and (the two ends of your ppp link) are covered by this range. What I would suppose is happening is that pinging from the server your packet is hitting the client's link, a reply is generated and then dumped onto the tl0 ethernet rather than back out through the ppp link since the tl0 link is ahead in the routing table on the client. I would suggest that you use a different rfc1918 net for the ppp link ( e.g.), or for your client's LAN.
