I want to test the PPPoE setup from linux. In a ethernet LAN, i
have the access concentrator running ( its IP is 192.168.100.4
say ) and it provides services of name say "String1" and
"string2". This is a third party PPPoE access concentrator
Now from the same LAN, from a linux machine i want to initiate a
PPPoE session with the access concentrator. How can i do that
from linux. I dont have any modem setup to do this ( i dont think
it required in my case since everything in same ethernet lan. It
worked from windows too ).
I have roaring PPPoE installed and i did the steps mentioned in
roaring pppoe site for configuration. Also i haven't enabled the
firewall and dont have my ethernet card configured with a IP address.
When i say "adsl-start" after configuration it is not connecting.
It is getting timed out. I feel the configuration is the problem.
How to actually do a connect in this setup. I have the PPP
username and password which i have configured in
/etc/ppp/pap-secrets and sameway for chap too. What i need to do,
how exactly i can do a connect. I tried adsl-connect too, but it
didn't worked for me. Kindly help me.
