Victory over VPN's

This is how it turned out:
The ethernet adapter which was connected to the DSL modem had an IP address in the same subnet as the vpn'ed network. This resulted in the ping packets being sendt through the normal ethernet adapter. Changing the subnet to something else corrected the problem. And seeing it now its clear that it couldn't work before. Well, you live and learn.

In other news i finally got my DSL connection at home ordered. They say it will work from 18.10.2004 on. I'm curious if the Fritz DSL SL card works as expected. - I installed the drivers with the fcdsl ebuild for gentoo. Let's hope all is okay, and i can simply plug in the card and go online. - But something whispers "It won't work!" into my ear...
