We have a simple pptp setup on our windows 2k3 server. So far all clients can connect just fine, mac and windows.
However I tried connecting an ubuntu server using pptp and the connection is fine I get an IP. From the 2k3 server I can ping the remote ubuntu server and vice versa. However, I cannot ping other machines on the LAN local to the VPN Server. <--Edited in response to Zoredache
I'm not sure if I have something misconfigured somewhere. Anyone have any experience with pptp on Ubuntu Server?
Maybe something I need to set up routing after connecting?
Under the win2k3 policies we just have a usergroup of users able to access the VPN and other machines on the NET. The user connecting is part of that group.
Update in response to questions below:
route before connecting vpn
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface 188.8.131.52 * 255.255.255.224 U 0 0 0 eth0 default ip66-104-92-193 0.0.0.0 UG 100 0 0 eth0
route after connecting vpn

I'm using pptp on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS My global config file on the ubuntu server and my connection config file:
# PPTP Tunnel configuration for tunnel CSTS MotherShip # Server IP: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx #masked for security name shai file /etc/ppp/options.pptp require-mppe require-mppe-128
/etc/ppp/options.pptp doesn't exist
In response to Zoredache: I don't need LAN machines on the VPN servers side to access anything but the remote ubuntu pptp client. On the Ubuntu machine's LAN, other machines don't need to access it.
Have you enabled the ppp option to set the tunnel as the default gateway in the pptp client?
I'm looking where to enable that option. I'm using pptp 1.7.0
After conntecting via VPN, on the Ubuntu server I ran:
route add default gw 192.168.1.1 and got back
SIOCADDRT: No such process. 192.168.1.1 is the router on the LAN local to the VPN server.
