PPPoE Server Setup problem

Hi ,

I am trying to setup a PPPoE server which can hold Client connections on Redhat Linux Enterprise edition.

I installed the rp-pppoe3.5 software available on roaring penguin website.
After having run the install commands and enabling the processes for pppoe setup I enter the following commands for enabling the pppoe-server and IP masquerading.

1) pppoe-server I eth0 L R
2) iptables A POSTROUTING t nat o eth0 s 0/0 d 0/0 j MASQUERADE
3) echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

Things work fine and I have the server ready once connecting eth1 to the mini-dslam (I am using an ADAPCOM MC-890 8-port Mini-DSLAM) using a crossover cable.
And I am able to connect modems to the dslam and use the machine as a PPPoE server:-), but the problem arises when I connect more than two modems to the DSLAM:-(
I am really confused as to what the reason is , have been hunting for around a day to get some answers but nothin seem to be changing.
Please let me know if someone has some inputs on this or any lik where I can find relevant information.
