PPPoE setup parameters


long time Ipfire user, but now with a new provider.

The provider requires:
PPPoE routed, incapsulation PTM, NAT active, VLAN 835

In the Dialup page, I don’t see the fields that should be filled with these values…

Please forgive me if it’s a silly question…

Thanks for your comments,

I think you have to access the console, re-run setup, and change the red interface:

thanks for your kind reply, but in setup/network address/red interface there is only:

() PPP DIALUP (PPPoE, modem, ATM …) │
│ DHCP Hostname: ipfire_____│
│ Force DHCP MTU: ________│
│ IP address: ___ │
│ Network mask:
│ Gateway:

I believe this is standard configuration.

  • Select PPP in “setup”
  • Select VDSL on the web user interface and set the VLAN ID and put in any user credentials you got

That should work

thanks, but cannot see where to enter the encapsulation in the web user interface, or the VLAN 835 (is this the VLAN ID, btw?)…


Yes. Try, it should work.
