No pppoe status in WebUI



  • I can't find any indication of pppoe server status in the WebUI. I expected to see a line in status_services.php and/or status_interfaces.php. I also expected to see information on active pppoe clients somewhere like diag_dhcp_leases.php or some comparable page such as diag_pppoe_leases.php.

    Is there a plan to add pppoe server status to the webUI, or am I just not looking in the right place?



  • Nothing there as far as I know, and no plans to add anything in the near future. Contributions welcome, we'd gladly add for 2.0, or email me if you're willing to put some money towards its development.



  • I'd be interested in doing some web development there. Where would I begin to look in the shell for the information I would need?

    Also, does none of this functionality exist in the pppoe server of 1.2.3? I've seen the server there but never played with it at all. I'm quite pleased with seeing it work in 2.0 and would really like some status in the webUI.

    I think all you can see is under Status > System Logs, VPN tab, and then press the PPPoE button. It should show PPPoE login and logout events.

    Not sure if there is any way to get a list of currently connected clients or not.



  • I found that one, but it appeared to be formatted incorrectly. Every line had a time, but the even column had only triangles in it "<|". Each triangle was a link but I forget what it linked to since I cleared the log yesterday and haven't had any connection. The user and IP Address columns were totally empty except 1 in approximately 30 lines had something in the user column. I forget what that something was, but it was not a user name.

    In short, the log page has time-stamped entries, but they are otherwise meaningless.

    I did find a log file in the shell that shows connect and disconnect events. I haven't found any other useful related info yet though.

    It probably just needs updated to handle a new log format.

    The triangles indicate login or logout. Usually |> was login and <| was logout. Each login line should have a username and IP, the logout line just has username.

    Or at least that's what used to happen.
