[quote=“Dog’s_Breakfast”][quote=“MaPoSquid”][quote=“miltownkid”]Google + PPPoE + Linux = What you’re looking for I think.
I’m pretty sure the distro I’m using came with one.[/quote]
Buggering hell. It worked. Thanks man![/quote]
Glad it worked, though it’s kind of a drag that not every distro uses the same method (which means there’s no straightforward answer to this question). Out of curiosity, which distro are you using?[/quote]
Knoppix 3.7 EN
Any distribution CAN use the same method; the PPPoE client is freely downloadable from the Roaring Penguin website. At most you would need to install their client.
In Knoppix’s case, I just type “pppoeconf”, hit enter a bunch of times, and enter the ID and password. It remembers it permanently (or until I reboot), so I just have to type the startup and shutdown commands (which “pppoeconf” mentions, haven’t used them yet so I don’t remember them offhand).
