PPPoE and Static IP



  • Hello together

    I'm with Swisscom in Switzerland and I ordered a static IP from them.
    Now that I haven't got a business Internet connection they sent me the login for my router. I need to type in a PPPoE Login and the static IP address. This works fine with a Zyxell Zywall, but I can't find an option within PFSense. Isn't this supported? Or is it hidden?

    Version is 2.2.6

    Thanks for your help!



  • Hi!

    You just enter credentials, static IP you orders will be automatically assigned to you.



  • I have the same problem and i can confirm that Maverick_slo solution works. The funny thing is that i get unnecessary package restarts  :

    /rc.newwanip: pfSense package system has detected an IP change or dynamic WAN reconnection - 1.2.3.4 -> 1.2.3.4 - Restarting packages.

    I think that you can also edid mpd5.conf and specify any static ipv4 there.

    Now it's more complicated if you also have an static ipv6 allocated. In my case i've got a static /64 routed on the wan side and a delegated static /56 for lan. I cannot find a way to assign the address i want from that static /64 on the wan interface.



  • Ok, thanks for the reply. I've just tested it. Seems to work, I have the IP I ordered.

    I'll look into the logs if I find any such entries.
