Wish: Loopback-Interface

I want to have a loopback interface to resolve some things

Example: MT has two connections to next location (Wireless 34M and Fixed 10M Backup). MT is acting as an PPPTP-VPN-Server. Customers are connecting to an address of the wireless transfer network. When the wireless link is down the PPTP-Request for this address fails because it is now on the inside (view from customer).

Or can I solve this problem in an other way than with LoopBack?

We have used a Bridge interface without adding physical interfaces to it.
It seems to work. We have to source-NAT from some specific
ip's on a vendor link we setup a while ago. This seems to work with no issues.
