3.My ip gets changed every time I login.I have dynamic IPs.
There are two IPs:
to 1. : I had a course at "Active Directory" (Users/Groups) and the professor tried dynamic internal IPs and it ended in a mess ! The whole day was lost for somehow the professor now knows it does not work or only works if something special is fixed.
to 2. : As far as I know people with a normal wire-telephone-number get static IPs from their providers.
Yes, are you now wanting someone to come read the replies to you???
You still have not told anyone about the status of the commands we gave you, and are insisting that you're providing "all information", when all we know is you've got a network cable, ADSL, and dynamic IP's.
Go back to the very first reply. Start reading, and this time, try to actually *UNDERSTAND* the words. If they suggest typing in something...DO IT.
Now, do you think all the people who have replied to you are idiots? They all have given you pretty much the sane solutions. And you have not tried till date and not even mentioned if you have got issues with all the commands told. GO and do what has been told and then come back with the issues that you may have.
As for the IP, you get the dynamic ip from your ISP and that is how ADSL works in India. You need to buy the static external live ip.
Internal ip that you assign to computer can be static and it depends on you how you want to configure it.
Well, yes, those are the steps to follow. You only however need to follow the install directions, if .go and .go-gui don't work for you. So I take it that, .go & .go-gui didn't work out for you?
In this case, you follow the steps of the installation. If the installation steps do work out for you, no quit errors on "make install", then you should indeed read the file HOWTO-CONNECT in the directory named: "doc".
(from inside the rp-pppoe folder.
cat HOWTO-CONNECT "OR" nano HOWTO-CONNECT "even" kate HOWTO-CONNECT should work.
so pick any GUI or SHELL text editor that you prefer to read the document.
If you follow these steps, as i take, you did, then you are on the right path of settings up your connection.
Can anyone give me proper step by step solution for this? Atleast help me get internet on my machine rest i can do it somehow.please all you experts help me! Stop sending try and try, read and read, i did all that but some commands are not working.
