I see some _potential_ confusion as to what ip addresses mean on a VPN.
(Are you trying to not only connect not just two machines together, but all the computers that are on the same network "behind" either machine? If so, disregard the rest of this message...)
A VPN connection is almost like someone installing a second network card in your computer. Being connected to the VPN means that your computer has two "network cables" that it can talk through, and two identities (one for each network). The "vpn cable" on the client machine connects to the back of the server machine (in a TUN network), or into the same hub that the server machine is plugged into (in a TAP network)
This is what a TAP network could look like:
BRIDGED network (both cards have the same identity): 192.168.1.2
normal network: 192.168.0.2
vpn network: 192.168.1.3 (same subnet as server, different address)
in this instance your ifconfig line would be in the 192.168.1.x subnet, and would be careful not to assign any ip addresses that the cable/dsl router on your server network might assign. or drop the line and have the cable/dsl router field all requests from machines on the vpn
This is what a TUN network could look like:
Server machine: normal network: 192.168.1.2 vpn network: 192.168.3.1 Client machine: normal network: 192.168.0.2 vpn network: 192.168.3.3 In this instance you should be using a tun-style network.

i also tried to establish some routs... does i have to change the subnetsmasks of the virtual ip adresses?
