Greetings list,

server/linux 2.0rc1 and clients XP using 2.0rc1(GUI)

reading up the man/how-to,  it does detail how to use "up
./somescripthere" option on the server (linux)
to push additional routes to clients (XP)..
1. running in a routed config with "redirect-gateway" for all
clients.., all the traffic after VPN establish
goes thru VPN tunnel..that's good and is required for my env..
2. if the original client IP was w.x.y.z/24 and it's gateway was
w.x.y.1, after the VPN establish, the default gateway becomes (vpn range)..what I would also like is to setup another
route to previous/entire corp network, something like route to
w.0.0.0/8 network to use w.x.y.1/24 . the catch is w.x.y.1 is not a
constant or same for all clients(depending on which location/building
the client laptop is)..it may be w.a.b.1/24 ot w.a.c.1/24 etc etc..
3. basically use the default gateway of the client (prior to VPN
establish) as the gateway to push
additional routes to corp network(s)..

any insight or how to do would be very much appreciated..
