RES: RE: PPPoE Dialer automation

Thomas,
 
Here in my area we have this problem:
 
If you want to get a real DSL, you have to hire another service from the same 
company. However, the real DSL's operate in PPPoA. That means: PPPoA MUXes must 
be available in your region. Since the demand for these babies are too high, 
sometimes the wait line is over 2 months... Not to mention the cost. Almost 
four times more expensive than PPPoE DSL's. Advantages: you don't have to dial 
and you can get an static IP address, too.
 
Residential DSL's used to be PPPoA as well, but as the demand kept growing, 
they were forced to migrate the PPPoA MUXes for the business folks and put some 
PPPoE MUXes for the folks at home.
 
So what did I think? Teach my branch office folks how do dial it and we save 
huge bucks =) There's no need to have a static IP address at the branch office 
considering that RRAS trick...
 
Well, guess this is it. If I find something about it, I'll share it!

Hi Tiago,
 
I've been wondering the same thing. I think if you want to create a gateway to 
gateway VPN link to connect networks, you're going to have to bag the bogus 
PPPoE stuff and get a real DSL connection. I don't see any way to get RRAS to 
recognise the PPPoE interface as a modem interface that can be used by a demand 
dial interface.
 
If you come up with a answer, I'd like to know it too!
 
Thanks!
Tom

        Hey people,
         
        Is there any PPPoE software that allows integration with RRAS? I'd like 
to automate as much as possible the dial-up procedure for my PPPoE modem. Today 
I'm using RASPPPoE, but it creates a dial-up connection like a modem, and I 
can't create static routes using RRAS because it can't see the interface 
created by RASPPPoE.
         
        So what happens? When my users arrive at the branch office, they have 
do dial this interface in order for the rest of the services come up.
         
        Thanks,
