Re: DSL Config problems
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Silly question: did you install the pppoe deb? You should use the command
line, and leave kde out of it. When you use the pppoe deb you'll get
interactive questions about the various configuration options.
As long as your two ethernet cards show up with ifconfig, you're good to go.
It seems like you don't have eth1 set to come up automatically at boot time.
So edit your /etc/network/interfaces file to add what you need for eth1. Mine
looks like this: . Your information maybe different, but I've got the same
kind of thing going on with my machine, too.
You'll also need a separate firewall (just in case, not attempting to insult
:-) to handle unwanted traffic, etc...the pppoe interactive setup does set
you up initially with forwarding.
# /etc/network/interfaces -- configuration file for ifup(8), ifdown(8)
# The loopback interface
# automatically added when upgrading
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth1 inet static
