Debian with PPTP Server

Dear All

My scenario is

Debian with PPTP Server in which I am able to connect to through other machines. Ive enable echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward and through client machine i can browse internet as well

I created another pptp client in debian server which connects to another service provider. Now I want my users which are connecting to this debian pptp server to use internet which I m getting on this server from another ISP (through a pptp client)
I already tried All Traffic Through Tunnel script but it didnt helped me out.

pptpctrl - PPTP control connection manager SYNOPSIS
pptpctrl pptp-debug-flag no-ipparam-flag ppp-options-value ppp-speed-value ppp-local-ip-value ppp-remote-ip-value [ pptp-call-id ] [ ppp- binary ] [ pptp-logwtmp ] DESCRIPTION
pptpctrl is usually run by pptpd(8), but can also be run from inetd(8) if some of the features of pptpd(8), such as IP pool management, and inbuilt TCP wrappers, are not required. OPTIONS
pptpctrl options are unconventional, as they are designed for use by pptpd(8) rather than users. The option order is critical. Flag options consist of a 0 or 1, and must be present. Value options consist of a 0, or a 1 followed by the value. Either the 0 or both the 1 and the value must be present. The remaining options are optional, but must be present in the defined order. The options are as follows: pptp-debug-flag if set (1), enables debug messages to syslog from pptpctrl. This has no effect on the setting of the PPP debug option. no-ipparam-flag if set, pptpctrl will not pass the client's IP address to pppd(8) using the ipparam option. See the noipparam option in pptpd.conf(5). ppp-options-value file to use for PPP options. See the file option in pppd(8). ppp-speed-value value for the speed option given to pppd(8). Note that on Linux, this parameter is ineffective. ppp-local-ip-value if set, specifies the IP address that pppd(8) is to use for the network interface on the server. If not set, pppd(8) will determine it based on options; usually it will be the ethernet address of the server. ppp-remote-ip-value if set, specifies the IP address that pppd(8) is to use for the network interface on the client. If not set, pppd(8) will determine it based on options; usually it will be the ethernet address of the client, or an address given in chap-secrets. Must be set if ppp-local-ip-value is set. pptp-call-id if present, specifies the call identification for the PPTP session. If omitted, the call identification is zero. Normally the ID is allocated by pptpd(8) and passed to pptpctrl. ppp-binary if present, path to the PPP binary to use. If omitted, the default value is used. pptp-logwtmp if present, specifies whether wtmp(5) should be updated as users connect and disconnect. FILES
