[pptp-server] problem with routing table on client

Good day everyone,
I'm using RH7.3, kernel 2.4.18-3 with ppp-mppe 2.4.1-6 (rpm version) and
pptpd 1.1.2-2. Everything works great
except one little problem. Our network is 184.108.40.206-191. When VPN
is up, I check the client side routing
table and see an entry similar to this:
220.127.116.11 255.0.0.0 18.104.22.168 22.214.171.124 1
I have seen discussions about Microsoft always giving the wrong subnet
mask (i.e., 255.0.0.0).
But with this huge subnet 126.96.36.199 instead of 188.8.131.52 (desirably
184.108.40.206 and subnet mask
255.255.255.224), there is possibly a huge amount of traffic going
to/from this huge network. And all of it
will be blocked by the firewall on the pptp server.
Is there any work-around that anyone has known of?
Thanks for any help
