Well, I tried setting the netmask in the client's
/etc/ppp/options file and also on the command line, but no
change.  I also added into the server side /etc/ppp/options,
again no change.  I can ping any node on the server's network
segment from the client, I just can't get to the router.  The
router has address and that's the only address I
can't ping.  I'm beginning to wonder if this isn't a problem with
the routing hardware not accepting packets from the proxy arp'ed
client.  Does anyone know if that's a possibility?  Are there any
other ways of getting my home PC to talk to the internal lan
(i.e. without proxyarp)?

I'd be more than happy to supply more info to anyone willing to
help. Just tell me what you need.

Thanks again in advance.
