I am trying use pptpclient-restart at Linux to connect to my office (linux
pptp server) in case of link goes down or any failed else.

I insert at cron the line to do that each 5 minutes:
5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55 * * * * /home/fabio/pptpclient-restart

But I am getting the error below:

# sh pptpclient-restart
pptpclient-restart: line 14: syntax error: unexpected end of file

Thanks for any help.

Assunto: Re: [pptp-server] route rules in linux and Windows ??

Man i mess all info this time ...

 Let's be more specific ..

I have this scenario :

Windows 2000 Server - Using Dial Up connection.
He is a proxy then he use has the IP (Mask
I have 3 machines below that are -  to

Linux usign pptpd server .
He is using a Cable modem connection on his eth0 and has the IP in his ETH1.
Have 30 machines using it . ( 192.168.10.x) Mask
I leave the range - to VPN purposes.

I just need to know when the client connect (Win2000) how make the computers
that are in the (192.168.1.x) network see the (192.168.10.x) computers
connected in the server side over the tunnel.

Also i put to when the client connect always receive the IP

I think it's simple .

If i'm wrong please someone tell-me !!

Under the Linux server i must put this :

/sbin/route add -net netmask gw

(Think that with this i tell the server this route)

But what put under the WIndows 2000 client ?? To his inside networks
computers see the inside networks computer of the vpn server ??

I think i just need two rules one at each computer (server and client) but
what rule ??

Well thanks anyway .
