Win2k(Alice) Linux(Bob) Win2k(Chris) -

I'd like the two client machines (alice & chris) to share a private
network through the server (Bob) over CIPE.  The only way I could think of
was to give each machine its own subnet and have Bob route between them.

I tried this for ages, but I could never get the Win2k clients to route
the network down the interface.  If I added specific routes
then it sent the packets (from Alice to Bob) but then Bob failed to
forward them.


With the following assumptions:
- CIPE tunnel between Alice and Bob with CIPE IP addresses
- Bob and Chris are on the same LAN with LAN IP addresses
- Bob is Chris' default gateway
Adding a route to Alice for the Bob-Chris LAN (route add mask should allow packets to get from Alice to Chris and back.

If however, the following scenario presents itself:
- CIPE tunnel between Alice and Bob with IP addresses as marked above
- CIPE tunnel between Bob and Chris with IP addresses as marked above
then the following should work (never done this so totally untested):
- add route to Alice that points to (route add mask
- add route to Chris that points to (route add mask
