well, it turns out i need more: i added route pointing to my business
server going through the virtual cipe interface. now i can connect to my
big server that sists on the same network segment that the CIPE server is
on, but i can connect only from the console and the terminals. the pc that
sits on eth0 of the remote cipe box has access to the 'net (firewall down
for the moment), natting is on, masquerade is on, ip forwarding on. this
pc just can't connect to the "other" side of the virtual private cipe
connection.  What have i missed here? tia, julius
