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 (172.16.0.0/16). I have pptpd assign remote IP's
from the 172.16.1.1-254 range and local IP's from the 172.16.2.1-254 range;
and I want Samba to listen on 172.16.3.1.
The trouble is, I don't know how to create a "virtual" interface to which I
can associate the 172.16.0.0/16 network and still be able to have pptpd use
Please send replies to the list, otherwise you will have to deal with my
