[pptp-server] A newbie query ...

I have a test environment setup using poptop server.
My server is installed at a linux box which is connected to my LAN, and
dials out to isp to get a outside recognisable IP. My client is on windows
m/c and dials out to ISP.

So both machines connect to internet through dialup, and Linux server is
hooked to the LAN through its only network card.

So far I have been able to dial up and successfully made the VPN
connection ( As the server m/c created another PPP device for this
connection ), but could not ping the server machine.

Where I am going wrong. Any help will be appreciated.

My intention is to connect to the server machine and then telnet to some
local machine in the LAN from dialup windows client.

So what are the normal steps for such a configuration. 

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

With Best Regards,
