ADSL Setup to ISP with Proxy

I am trying to configure a ADSL Alcatel Speed Touch Home modem that comes with RJ45 10 BaseT X interface on my RedHat 7.3 box to connect to our ISP. In our country we need to setup some proxy information in the server, like...

ISP provide me Enternet 300 PPPoE software but I am using for Windows but I am using for Linux.

Following are the sample info that one need to enter to the Windows/Linux Server:

User Name =
password = 12345678
HTTP proxy = port=8080
HTTPS proxy = port=8080
FTP proxy = port=8080
MTU for my connection is = 1454 (I have tested )

Any help please?

run this as root:


for sure, only the username and password above will be in use. use adsl-setup. u also need to provide the DNS server IP address.

If you want a GUI based tool, run this:

The proxy IP address will be needed by your browser and other internet apps.

Thanks for your reply. Without these proxy information, the DSL connection will not come up!

Should we run a Linux based proxy application?
