Re: Special case of VPN : how can I do this ?

Dear Kevin or any linux users:

in my peer/dsl-provider
pty .......
it also have similar situation,
but I really did not know why my pppoe keep not work
that is in 2.4.20 kernel of 686 from unstable

if I swtch back to old kernel image for boot 2.218, then my internet through
pppoe work

I find the difference of lsmod
in 2.4.20 it have ppp_async, ppp_generic which 2.2.18 do not have
but 2.2.18 have ppp_deflate and bsd_comp, and ppp which 2.4.20 do not have

hope to your or any advancer's help

sincere Eric
