Setting up a PPPoE server with NetBSD
I had an urge to configure PPPoE today, but didn't have a
DSL line handy to test it. So, with some help from martin@,
I got to prod NetBSD into becoming a PPPoE server.
I've put my notes here.
I understand this method is only for one/few PPPoE connections.
If more sessions are needed, this may not be the best option.
It still served my purpose well. YMMV.
- Whenever I terminate a client session ("ifconfig pppoe0 down"),
the server's pppoe0 interface goes down as well. Before new
connections are served, I have to do a manual "ifconfig pppoe0 up".
- When I add "query-dns=3" to the client side, the connection is
terminated immediately after it's established. I don't know
how to offer DNS servers via PPPoE/LCP, but at least just
leaving the connection open instead of terminating it would
