VPN Route Command
I'm trying to route some traffic but cannot figure out the route commands necessary. I'm setting up a VPN tunnel but no matter what I try I cannot seem to get all traffic routed through the tunnel...here are some numbers that may help...
These are how everything is configured once I *think* the tunnel is up and ready, but routing hasn't been adjusted. I can ping 22.214.171.124, and traceroute shows it as 1 hop away. I cannot ping 192.168.35.117. I can connect to external sites, but it's not going through the tunnel.
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
192.168.35.117 * 255.255.255.255 UH 0 0 0 ppp0
192.168.6.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 wlan0
default 192.168.6.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 wlan0

Link encap: Ethernet inet addr:192.168.6.104 Bcast:192.168.6.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
I've tried a handful of stuff seen across the net while trying to get it to work. The majority of `route add` commands I enter result in a no such process error. A few are actually successful, but either cause me to lose connection altogether, or kills the tunnel.
I thought maybe
route add default gw 188.8.131.52
would work, but that causes the tunnel to hang up altogether.
Can anyone help out here?

Your default route is set to 192.168.6.1 you probably want to remove that and try again,
See if that helps.
