Samba share over VPN
Hello, I just managed to pass the first hurdle and get the VPN connected, using pptpconfig. Now I'm trying to actually mount a samba share over the vpn but smbclient is just giving me timeouts on both the ports it tries, although I can ping the host successfully.
If I stopped the pptp connection I got the same result so I tried making net.ppp0 (some of this might be gentoo specific) service with
config_ppp0=( "ppp" ) link_ppp0="eth0" plugins_ppp0=( "pppoe" "winbind" ) username_ppp0="me"
