Problems Connecting to DSL
I tried to connect to my DSL account using KInternet (on SuSE 9.1), without success. I was advised to use adsl-start (stop|status|setup) to connect instead, which makes sense because I spend about half my time in runlevel 3.
I'm using a 4-port hub with an uplink going out to the DSL modem (no router at this point). I eventually want to use this box as the gateway by adding a second NIC, but one problem at a time. I just want to get this one single box to connect to the internet for the time being.
Since my ISP uses dynamic IP, I let DHCP handle IP addressing. Also, the ISP is handling DNS.
I ran the adsl-setup as follows:
linux:/etc # adsl-setup Welcome to the Roaring Penguin ADSL client setup. First, I will run some checks on your system to make sure the PPPoE client is installed properly... Looks good! Now, please enter some information: USER NAME >>> Enter your PPPoE user name (default email@example.com): INTERFACE >>> Enter the Ethernet interface connected to the ADSL modem For Solaris, this is likely to be something like /dev/hme0. For Linux, it will be ethn, where 'n' is a number. (default eth0): eth0 MODEM TYPE We will try to detect if your modem is compliant with RFC 2516 or not. 3COM's 3CP4130 is *NOT* compliant, for instance. Searching for a modem at interface eth0... Found a RFC 2516 compliant modem, congratulations! Do you want the link to come up on demand, or stay up continuously? If you want it to come up on demand, enter the idle time in seconds after which the link should be dropped. If you want the link to stay up permanently, enter 'no' (two letters, lower-case.) NOTE: Demand-activated links do not interact well with dynamic IP addresses. You may have some problems with demand-activated links. >>> Enter the demand value (default no): no DNS Please enter the IP address of your ISP's primary DNS server. If your ISP claims that 'the server will provide DNS addresses', enter 'server' (all lower-case) here. If you just press enter, I will assume you know what you are doing and not modify your DNS setup. >>> Enter the DNS information here: server PASSWORD >>> Please enter your PPPoE password: >>> Please re-enter your PPPoE password: FIREWALLING Please choose the firewall rules to use. Note that these rules are very basic. You are strongly encouraged to use a more sophisticated firewall setup; however, these will provide basic security. If you are running any servers on your machine, you must choose 'NONE' and set up firewalling yourself. Otherwise, the firewall rules will deny access to all standard servers like Web, e-mail, ftp, etc. If you are using SSH, the rules will block outgoing SSH connections which allocate a privileged source port. The firewall choices are: 0 - NONE: This script will not set any firewall rules. You are responsible for ensuring the security of your machine. You are STRONGLY recommended to use some kind of firewall rules. 1 - STANDALONE: Appropriate for a basic stand-alone web-surfing workstation 2 - MASQUERADE: Appropriate for a machine acting as an Internet gateway for a LAN >>> Choose a type of firewall (0-2): 1 ** Summary of what you entered ** Ethernet Interface: eth0 User name: firstname.lastname@example.org Activate-on-demand: No DNS addresses: Supplied by ISP's server Firewalling: STANDALONE >>> Accept these settings and adjust configuration files (y/n)? y Adjusting /etc/ppp/pppoe.conf Adjusting /etc/ppp/pap-secrets and /etc/ppp/chap-secrets (But first backing it up to /etc/ppp/pap-secrets-bak) (But first backing it up to /etc/ppp/chap-secrets-bak) Congratulations, it should be all set up! Type 'adsl-start' to bring up your ADSL link and 'adsl-stop' to bring it down. Type 'adsl-status' to see the link status. linux:/etc # adsl-stop adsl-stop: No ADSL connection appears to be running linux:/etc # adsl-start ................TIMED OUT /usr/sbin/adsl-start: line 191: 5151 Terminated $CONNECT "$@" >/dev/null 2>&1 linux:/etc #
Here are my results from adsl-status and my ifconfig:
adsl-status: Link is down (can't read pppoe PID file /var/run/pppoe.conf-adsl.pid.pppoe) eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:B00:18:41:43 inet6 addr: fe80::2b0:d0ff:fe18:4143/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST NOTRAILERS RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1492 Metric:1 RX packets:657 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:160 frame:0 TX packets:75 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:42355 (41.3 Kb) TX bytes:17634 (17.2 Kb) Interrupt:3 Base address:0xe800 lo Link encap:Local Loopback inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0 inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1 RX packets:42 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:42 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 RX bytes:2708 (2.6 Kb) TX bytes:2708 (2.6 Kb)

there's a few option that might have to look again...
Is your ISP a dynamic ISP
Does your modem support router configuration (ex: Speedstream does, it will connect it self with his own PPPoE adapter and will act as router to you)

There's no routing with this modem (Telekom Teledat 300 LAN). I need to establish a PPPoE connection from the machine.
T-Online provides dynamic IPs.
I'm switching IPs in the near future, and I've ordered a router. Although I could just wait until then, I'm not the type of guy to give up on anything
