Got pppoe working June 5, 2007

Posted by TSAI HONG-BIN in Linux.

On Ubuntu! so exciting.

It takes about … almost an hour, and I can hardly tell how it works … it’s working anyway. No wonder normal people feel like to stick to Micro$oft windows, at least it takes less than 5 minutes to get online over PPPOE. Oh! did I mention that my alpha blending effect works on merely 256MB RAM? I can afford the time to set up my system, but not the money. Question, will you spend over $3000 on additional RAM just for “watching windows fading?” How about you save the money and see a 3D cubic desktop swirling?

Anyway, do

#sudo apt-get install pppoe

in advance. Than run

#sudo pppoe-setup

follow the instructions to give your username and password that issued by your ISP. Edit /etc/ppp/peer/dsl-provider and give

user username@sample.net

now run

#sudo pon dsl-provider

and get ready to spin
