Re: Roaring Penguin PPPoE client

% I how configure this client.


Just run adsl-setup and follow the prompts. Or run the GUI ((tkpppoe) and fill in the fields. It's pretty intuitive.

Re: Roaring Penguin PPPoE client
rp-pppoe is great software.. should be included
with more CDROM distributions, imho (particularly
with adsl on the rise as a solution for home
networking)..

ive noticed a wierd bug though, when i recompiled
rp-pppoe for kernel 2.4.2: the pppoe kernel-mode
works, but only root has access to the connection.
has this happened to anyone else? is there an
easy fix?

It does indeed. And the latest rp-pppoe (2.8) supports kernel-mode PPPoE, but with the same simple setup and start/stop scripts as user-mode PPPoE.

Linux 2.4.0 isn't really bleeding edge anymore. PPPoE in the kernel plus pppd 2.4.0 works like a charm.

Roaring Penguin PPPoE client

I have had great success with the Roaring Penguin client and my PacBell DSL account.

It runs in userspace, which means it's not super-efficient, but I also don't have to worry about a bleeding-edge kernel module crashing my firewall. At full tilt on my 1.5Mbps DSL line, the pppoe CPU usage has spiked up to as high as 70% on my 486 router/firewall. This is fine with me, but something to think about if you are using a low-powered machine with other duties besides just routing.

good software.
I recently got Bell Atlantic ADSL service and was in need of a ppp
over ethernet solution (as bell atlantic uses winpoet for thier
dsl service and they do not support anything other than windows
and Mac's). While I at first had a bit of trouble setting things up
(mainly because Bell Atl. did not give much for documentation),
I managed to get things running without too much trouble... I specificly found the scripts that came with this package to be very helpful while the documentation was not any more helpfull than what I had seen in other packages.
