They both have different purposes. It sounds like you have set it up
how it should be, masq for the Windows nodes and diald for dial out.
It doesn't work when you ping because Linux 2.0.29 doesn't have
masquerading for ICMP, which is the protocol used for ping packets.
It should dialout for other connections if your diald is setup
that way. 2.0.30 does have masquerading for ping.
