My purpose is to route all traffic through a pptp connection from a linux machine. (Windows does this automatically after connecting to a pptp server).
pptpsetup --create TUNNEL --server [servhost] --username [user] --password [pass] --encrypt --start
Using interface ppp0 Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/pts/1 CHAP authentication succeeded MPPE 128-bit stateless compression enabled Cannot determine ethernet address for proxy ARP local IP address 10.55.0.8 remote IP address 10.55.0.1
This indicates a succesful connection. At this point I want to be able to route all my traffic through this new ppp0 interface, but I am not very familiar with routing. Tried to follow the guide about routing on the pptpclient homepage, but no success so far.
How can this be accomplished? What do I need to know? (This is a headless machine, thus I have no way to use graphical tools)
