PPPoE Issue After Upgrade



  • Hello,

    I'm trying to move from a pfSense 1.2.3 box to a pfSense 2.0.1 box.  I have everything working except our PPPoE DSL connection.  I think I've configured it the same on the new box, but the settings screen is slightly different.  Is there anything that changed between 1.2.3 and 2.0.1 that would be likely to cause issues with PPPoE?

    Here are the mpd.conf configuration files from our old and new configuration.  Please let me know if there is anything else I can provide that may help or any logging I can turn on to help me troubleshoot.

    Thanks!

    Old (working):

    
    pppoe:
    	new -i ng0 pppoe pppoe
    	set iface route default
    	set iface disable on-demand
    	set iface idle 0
    	set iface up-script /usr/local/sbin/ppp-linkup
    	set bundle disable multilink
    	set bundle authname "XXXXXX"
    	set bundle password "XXXXXX"
    	set bundle no noretry
    	set link keep-alive 10 60
    	set link max-redial 0
    	set link no acfcomp protocomp
    	set link disable pap chap
    	set link accept chap
    	set link mtu 1492
    	set ipcp yes vjcomp
    	set ipcp ranges 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0
    	set ipcp enable req-pri-dns
    	set ipcp enable req-sec-dns
    	open iface

  • What is in the PPP system log? (See Status -> System Logs and click on PPP tab.)

    What is reported in the PPP log after you go to Status -> Interfaces and click on the Reconnect button beside PPPoE?



  • Strange, I'm not sure what I did differently, but when I moved the DSL line back over to the new box to test and get a log file, PPPoE worked.  Oh well, just glad I'll finally get to enjoy all the goodies 2.0 has to offer.

    Thanks
