You didn't. Thanks for the info, it was among the things I tried but
apparently discarded too early. The route still says ppp0:
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref
192.168.248.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0
0 0 ppp0
...but I am getting pings through now, both from my home server and from
other workstations on my local subnet.
Now I just have to set up routing so the 192.168.248.0/24 subnet can
access other system in my own subnet, but that's another issue altogether.
