Thanks and Suggestion



  • Thanks pfSense team for the great tool that you have created!

    One suggestion I have is an issue that I recently ran into.  When setting up pfSense with our AT&T DSL with a static IP, I wanted pfSense to handle the PPPOE authentication as well as set the static IP.  I found that I could not do both.  pfSense could either do a static IP or do PPPOE.  It would be nice if I could have just set the craptastic Netopia that AT&T sends out in bridge mode and then have pfSense handle the rest…

    Thanks again for a great product!

  • I don't understand the question. I have setup lots of ATT DSL's and I generally use the craptastic Netopia to do PPPoE with the WAN bridged to LAN. Then I give the Firewall a static. A few times, when faced with the spectacularly-ultra-craptasic 2-Wire, I have bridged the CPE and done PPPoE on pfSense. In any case, the PPPoE login (generally with @static.att.net username) determines if your IP is static or dynamic, and what IP you get.
