Re: PPPoE access server

We also had linux with home-made-pppoe  a long time ago...

The problem is, on high bandwidth, the tc is a bit slow, and  'complicated',
too many scripts, too many rules, too much complex..

For us, mpd is another category of service clean and lightweight.

Here we use:
Diskless machines with Debian stable
intel nic
rp-pppoe(+home-made patches)
pppd with radius, radattr, rp-pppoe plugins
raduis + mysql for authentication
tc for shaping

Its working fine for years, but i'm not quite sure it is the best
possible setup for performance.
