I've seen the online documentation on netbsd.org, but it is only
applicable for 1.5Z. I'll probably upgrade once I have a faster
connection, but not now. I have Verizon DSL and I'm currently able to
use it with absolutely no problem on Mac OS X. I simply have to setup
connect using pppoe and enter a username and password. I'm attempting
to use rp-pppoe, but I've been less than successful. Here is what I've
1. Installed rp-pppoe
2. Disabled bringing NIC up at startup.
3. Brought NIC up by hand with
ifconfig fxp0 up
4. Ran adsl-setup
5. It says that it writes the file pppoe.conf into /etc/ppp, but it
doesn't. Instead I end up with an empty file called
/etc/ppp/pppoe.conf. I've tried entering the options in by hand, but
I'm not sure of the format exactly. I've already man pppoe.conf, it
doesn't show exact syntax.
Anyone have any suggestions?
