I have seen many many pages describing how to set up Samba with pptpd by
having pptpd assigning a small range of IP's on an existing physical (eth*)
lan.  That all makes sense to me.

However, I do not have that kind of setup.  I am leasing a server, and it is
not on a private lan, so I do not have a physical interface to associate with
the network I want to use (  I have pptpd assign remote IP's
from the range and local IP's from the range;
and I want Samba to listen on

The trouble is, I don't know how to create a "virtual" interface to which I
can associate the network and still be able to have pptpd use

Please send replies to the list, otherwise you will have to deal with my
