    rp-pppoe in slackware 10


    When i run the command adsl-start ,after sometime i get the "timed out" error.When i run adsl-status it gives me the following error:

    root@darkstar:~# adsl-status
    adsl-status: Link is down (can't read pppoe PID file /var/run/pppoe.conf-adsl.pi d.pppoe)

    Guys plz help me out with this.....cant figure this out on my own.

    Thanks.

    When it says "Link is down" it means you're in offline modus. You need to start the connection again by issuing the command "adsl-start".

    Good luck

    The PID file holds the process ID for pppoe, if pppoe isn't running there should be no PID file to read.
