rc-pppoe @ startup


I'm using rc-pppoe to connect to the internet with my dsl connection. It works fine but the only problem is: people need the root password in order to connect.

I want rc-pppoe to connect when booting. What should I need to do to get this to work?

Right now I don't use broadband connection but is there some kind of Group for the connection? Like dialup have a dialout or dip group you can add users to.

Quick fix: just stick it in any of your rc.* file (src.inet1, rc.inet2, or like me... rc.firewall).
