between them. The problem is when I start using internet on my client
(XP) using VPN through my Linux server, no page is shown and I see the

on my client side. Besides, when VPN connection is established, I
still have my original connection on XP side active and I can browse
through it and VPN connection is used unless I disable my original
connection. Should I really do that or other configuration is needed?
I have attached both server and client configuration files.

If you want to access the internet via the VPN, you probably want to
change the default route to pass through the VPN rather than directly
through the local internet connection. You may also need a route to
allow the VPN to work.
