    pppoe configuration for debian


    Hi!

    I need some help to configure my pppoe connection in debian. I have followed pppoeconf steps then I've started a connection. When I run plog, I've got this:

    Aug 28 22:35:35 debian pppd[3288]: Exit.

    Aug 28 22:37:35 debian pppd[3551]: Plugin rp-pppoe.so loaded.

    Aug 28 22:37:35 debian pppd[3553]: pppd 2.4.4 started by root, uid 0

    Aug 28 22:37:35 debian pppd[3553]: PPP session is 182

    Aug 28 22:37:35 debian pppd[3553]: Using interface ppp0

    Aug 28 22:37:35 debian pppd[3553]: Connect: ppp0 <--> eth0

    Aug 28 22:37:38 debian pppd[3553]: PAP authentication succeeded

    Aug 28 22:37:38 debian pppd[3553]: peer from calling number 00:15:17:C3:E3:0B authorized

    Aug 28 22:37:38 debian pppd[3553]: local IP address 188.25.46.81

    Aug 28 22:37:38 debian pppd[3553]: remote IP address 10.0.0.1

    It seems ok but the internet doesn't work.

    The remote address looks wrong to me. Addresses beginning with 10 are for internal networks only - they shouldn't occur on the public Internet.

    Can you presume the reason for this?

    You mean why are you getting this weird remote address? I'm no expert on networking but there are people here who are and who might be able to tell you. They will probably need more information though. You don't say exactly how you are connecting. Are you using an adsl modem or a network card and a router?

    Then I think you're probably making the same mistake that I did when I started using broadband. I used rp-pppoe for some time before I realised that it wasn't necessary and was actually counter-productive in some cases (whether it even works at all depends very much on your distro).

    You need this software when your computer is managing the broadband link via a dumb modem. When you are linked to a router via a network card, the router manages the broadband connection to your ISP and your computer talks to the router using ordinary tcp/ip (it's just an internal network) .

    So you need to configure your ethernet card to talk to your router, and then configure the router with your user name and password, your ISP's dns server addresses and so on. Usually you can do this through your browser.

    I'm lucky - my router acts as a dhcp server as well so I don't even need to configure my ethernet card. Here's my /etc/network/interfaces file:

    # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
    # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

    # The loopback network interface
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback

    # The primary network interface
    allow-hotplug eth0
    iface eth0 inet dhcp
