Re: setting up a pppoe server
you can use pptpd (poptop).
But I prefer pppoe. The main thing is connectiong server to RADIUS
(freeradius) server. This RADIUS can use MYSQL. You can use web
scripts (PHP-using same MYSQL tables) to add users, set quote ... and
everything you want.
DO NOT use PAP authentication becouse passwords are sending plain
text. And everyone can start pppoe-server with your name and will
collect passwords of others !
