Does anyone have any tips on getting hooked up to a local network from win95
client through a linux ppp server?

I'm close to getting it working. I've logged on remotely and can ping or
telnet to the linux ppp server but I cannot ping to any other machine on the
local network. Do I need to add some route commands? This is what my routing
table looks like after my ppp connection is started.

linux - linux ppp server
pbznet - router to internet - remote win95 client
