You should still set distinct numbers for the ends of the ppp link.
There's no need to use any of either LAN's ip numbers for that. Say
the router for LAN-A gets, and for LAN-B Then on the "server", it's, and on the client, as suggested (let
the server set the address).

So on the LAN-A router (server), you could do "route add 202.66.50", and on LAN-B (client); "route add 202.66.33".

It's even clearer if you set names for the interfaces. Then it would
be like routerA-ppp:routerB-ppp on one, and routerB-ppp:routerA-ppp on
the other. Likewise, "route add 202.66.50 routerB-ppp" on routerA, and
"route add 202.66.33 routerA-ppp" on routerB.
