Hi All,
I have a Linux machine "Fedora Core 2" kernel version 2.6.5-1.358, this machine has two network interfaces eth0 and eth1. eth0 is connected to the WAN side and eth1 is connected to the LAN side.

I have a number of windows xp machines on the LAN side connected to the linux machine, and I have VPN server connected to the WAN side.

How can I make the windows xp machines on the LAN get connected by using VPN to the VPN server at the same time through the linux machine?

Your support is highly appreciated

Regards
Bassam

The linux box should have an IP as its VPN entry point.
Try setting the default gateway on your windows boxes as that IP.

On each windows box do the following
Start -> run
    Type:  cmd
    Click OK
    type: ipconfig /all
    take note of your Ip address, subnet mask, dns servers

Network Connections ->
    Right click appropriate network icon ->
    Properties

In "This connection uses the following items:"
   single click on "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)"
   click Properties

Choose "Use the following IP address"
   enter your current ip address
   enter your current subnet mask
   enter the IP addy of the VPN entry point as the default gateway
   enter your dns servers

Click OK, click OK again.
I have somewhat the same setup, and this is how I do it. On my linux box I use the cisco vpn client, and have a windows box connect through that vpn tunnel as well as the linux box. Hope that helps
