Thanks Geoff,

I agree. It looks like a routing problem. Proxyarp works fine according to the
logs. I'm not too sure on pppd throwing up a heap of "unsupported protocol"
messages. I think it may be the netbios stuff, since it only appears when the
client attempts to explore the network.
I'll also add the wins server definition to the ppp options file, although I
don't think that will help. The IP addresses of the internal name server and
the wins server are specified in the client's vpn setup.
