I have a tunnel as described in openvpn.man,
Example 2, between my home 10.4.0.1 and work
"ping 10.4.0.1" from 10.4.0.2
"ping 10.4.0.2" from 10.4.0.1
succeed as expected.
Routing from the LAN attached to 10.4.0.2 does
not work yet.

So I'm left with two questions.
* What is the iptables command above doing?
* What does Tom mean by "... specify routing
