I have configure the ppp interface and now I can access to the network from 
home (ADSL) or at the office (ethernet). 
I have still a strange problem: At the office I have a fix IP address 
X.X.X.122. When I am there I can access the department server with fix IP 
address X.X.X.121, but at home, I cannot access to this server. In fact, when 
I do a trace, it try to access via my X.X.X.122 interface.
