How to have more than 256 PPPoE clients?



  • Hey all, i have a WiSP and want to start using PPPoE for my clients to connect.. but it seems that pfSense only allows 256 connections?  Surely there must be a way to have more?  Many ISPs have more than 256 users..  i figure pfSense can cater to this?  I have 2.0-RELEASE

    That is an artificial limit in the GUI, largely since high numbers haven't been thoroughly tested/vetted.

    You can either edit the value in the config.xml directly to be larger and then reboot, or edit the page so it draws many more numbers to choose from. (or change it to a text entry field).
