Thank you Sven for your consideration. All the machines, we have, are
running with Debian GNU/Linux 2.6.x.
The laptop we are going to move,in remote location, has
/etc/network/interface file that looks like the following:

auto lo eth0 ppp0

iface lo inet loopback

iface eth0 inet static
        address 192.168.0.xx
        gateway 192.168.0.xx

iface ppp0 inet ppp
        provider yyy

'network/interfaces' file for our gateway looks like the following:

auto lo eth0 eth1

iface eth0 inet static
        address 192.168.0.xx
        broadcast 192.168.0.xx

iface eth1 inet static
        address 209.87.243.xxx
        gateway 209.87.243.xxx
        broadcast 209.87.243.xxx

iface ppp0 inet ppp
        provider xxx-dialup

We connect to the gateway by "ssh gateway" then to the remote laptop in
order to have access to other remote machines.
Please let me know if this information is enough to get help.

I really appreciate your time and help.
