PPPoE Client on WAN



  • I'm testing 1.0.1 but also have this problem with the lastest snapshot.

    I configured PPPoE on WAN and put in username and password for my ISP. When I look at the system log I can see mtd trying to connect:

    Feb 18 10:43:03 mpd: MRU 1492
    Feb 18 10:43:03 mpd: MAGICNUM 08a3a2d6
    Feb 18 10:43:03 mpd: MRU 1492
    Feb 18 10:43:03 mpd: AUTHPROTO PAP
    Feb 18 10:43:03 mpd: MAGICNUM 6d53e795
    Feb 18 10:43:03 mpd: MRU 1492
    Feb 18 10:43:03 mpd: AUTHPROTO PAP
    Feb 18 10:43:03 mpd: MAGICNUM 6d53e795
    Feb 18 10:43:03 mpd: MRU 1492
    Feb 18 10:43:03 mpd: MAGICNUM 08a3a2d6
    Feb 18 10:43:03 mpd: MESG: 0012 PSLEI002 1286743468 test user

    As you can see, it sets the MTU and uses PAP but it won't connect. The logs aren't very detailed and useful but it seems it tries to use "test user" as login which of course is wrong.

    I can't believe nobody else noticed this until now, so I guess it's me doing something wrong. But what? Any hints? Is there a way to get more detailed logs?

    TIA



  • I have lots of pppoe wan installs out and never have seen something like that for years. And my logs are usually more detailed too. Not sure what to say or where to look here. Is this an old config that was updated several times? Maybe try with a fresh system without uploading an old config?



  • Well, those are fresh installs. What else could there be to configure besides setting WAN to PPPoE and putting in username and password? The logs are quoted from system log. Are there any more detailed logs? BTW, a test install of IPCop works well on the same line (but not at the same time of course).

    I used the shell but couldn't find the config files for mpd. Also a tail -f on the logs gives me garbage. Not familiar with BSD, so what would be a way to watch them?

    Quite some question. Thanks for answers.
