I'm sure it can't be that different from ipchains.  Note - you won't be 
able to "browse" the LAN unless you setup a WINS server, or add the nodes 
to your /etc/hosts (or c:\windows\hosts).  At any rate, make sure your 
iptables are set up to forward packets from the vpn interface (ppp0) or 
the vpn IP network to the local LAN interface/network.  That should do the 
trick - at least, it works for me!

It seems to be working but not exactly as I need it, because I can only VPN into my PoPTop server/firewall but not my LAN. I am pretty sure that it is because of my firewall settings. If anyone has sucessfully set up PoPTop on iptables firewall please help. Thanks allot in advance.
