Well, I don't think it's multiple zones, is it, at least not in the way specified on the page(192.168.x.? and 192.168.x+1.?), because to the linux machine, this should just appear as another local machine pinging it, right?  I don't need the linux machine to be able to access the other machines through the vpn, only the linux machine to be accessible itself through the vpn, if that makes sense.
