HEY PPL...i've finally configured it myself...thanx for the help newa ys
In stead of (or added to) this, you could kindly tell us how you fixed it, in case somebody else is struggling with the same problem; no matter how easily it was done, it might help somebody out.
I think the configuration tool for ADSL pppoe connections on Fedora Core (version 6 at least, so probably the older ones too) is called adsl-setup
like in Slackware (like Wim Sturkenboom said), but others to try (on other distributions and/or versions) are pppoeconfig
. After running through that configuration tool, answering to the questions, the program should ask if you'd like to start the connection during boot process, and tell how to start or stop it manually. If the configuration program won't start from console, try with full path; usually it resides under /sbin, so try /sbin/adsl-setup
Starting the connection goes similarly, for example on Fedora Core 6 it's /sbin/adsl-start
and stopping /sbin/adsl-stop
. Again, if /sbin is set in your $PATH variable, you don't need to enter the full path, just the executable name.
