Hi,

I'm an Aliant customer, and this morning they (apparently) switched my 
residential DSL over from the old bridged Ethernet system to PPPoE. I'm 
trying to connect using Debian's pppoe package, but I'm not having a lot of 
success. Here's what I've done:

Added a line to /etc/ppp/pap-secrets:
anderson1 at nf.aliant.net *       <password>

Modified /etc/ppp/peers/dsl-provider:
uncommented "user anderson1 at nf.aliant.net"
added "debug" option

Added a couple of lines to /etc/network/interfaces:

auto aliant inet ppp
        provider dsl-provider
        pre-up /sbin/ifconfig eth0 0.0.0.0 up

Then I run "ifup aliant".

Running "plog" shows:

"ifconfig -a" shows a ppp "device" for a little while:

ppp0      Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol
          POINTOPOINT NOARP MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:3
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 b)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)

This device disappears, however, after the errors that I see in plog.

So... does anybody else use Aliant PPPoE (successfully)? Can you help me?

Thanks,


#!/jon
