I've got a scenrio that I'm a little fuzzy on and wanted to get the community's advice. I explain the scenario by video on my whiteboard here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7p9RSqgIbBs

Basically, I've got 2 computers dialing into a VPN server. One of those computers has 2 NIC's - a nic connected to the LAN with the internet connection that's being used to establish the VPN, and a second NIC which is connected to another lan with a computer on it.

I want to be able to dial-up the VPN server from any computer, which I can do already, but when I connect to the VPN server, I want to be able to traverse to the computer I explained above with 2 NIC's - which again, itsn't a big issue, however the trick is, I want to then be "Routed" to the other host which is connected to NIC 2 of that machine.

The video draws it all out.

I'm using Ubunutu on the VPN Server, and the VPN client with 2 NIC's. The VPN client with 2 nic's is always dial-ed into the VPN server.

I need to be able to ping from a remote VPN host all the way to a specific device connected to NIC 2 of that Ubunutu VPN client... I know it can be done, just not sure were to put the configuration, or what the config might look like. Just need a push in the right direction.
