I think he said he normally feeds the other clients on the isolated network
when he is connected to it on the same LAN.  I think what he wants to do is
also feed the clients when he connects through the VPN.  It seems they can't
see him when he does that.  He is asking for help setting this up.

Personally, he is making his life too complicated.  The VPN is connected to
the outside already (he says through DSL.)  He should simply have put the
perproxy there!  That machine doesn't roam the way his laptop does!

If he still wants to keep the perproxy on his laptop, what he needs to do is
set up his clients to use one of two perproxy IP addresses: one for laptop's
"normal" address in the 192.168.x.x network, the other for when he comes in
through the VPN.
