    Hi all,
    first of all I have to tell you that I am a real beginner with linux.

    In the moment I have a DSL NAT router that connects my home network to
    the
    internet. What I would like to do is to place a linux server into my
    home network that has pptpd installed and allows to access data on
    some machines in the home netwok with a W2k client from the internet.

    I read some information about pptpd and how to configure it in the
    web, but nothing really worked. Since my task seems not to be too
    uncommon in my mind, I am wondering if there may be a description for
    this, that could help a dummy like me to solve the task (Which config
    files do I have to create/manipulate in SuSE 8.2? Do I have to install
    and configure PPP? If yes, how?...).

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Regards,
    Markus
