tips on setting up DSL over PPoE
I'm trying to hook up my redhat 7.1 linux box to my DSL modem. My DSL provider is Verizon and they use PPPoE. I installed a 10mbps 3com NIC, and it was detected. I have questions on how I authenticate and receive an IP though?
Do I set up my system as a DHCP client?
How will I be authenticated by my DSL provider? That is in windoze, it's necessary to login w/ a username and passwd with the verizon dial up app.
Any tips, suggestions, or links to help would be much appreciated.
A good place to start is with Roaring Penguin. It has a Linux PPPoE client, with an easy setup utility.
You can download the PPPoE client from www.roaringpenguin.com
Got it working last night w/ the PPPoE package that Red Hat has on 7.1 (which from roaringpenguin.com i believe). Though I think I've got to update my resolv.conf because I wasn't able to use netscape or ping anything by name.
