Re: pppoe configuration - unable to ping outside

Telephone Line (ISP)  ---> <adsl router> ---> [eth0, eth1 <<Server]
eth0 connected to router
eth1 connected to local network
First thing is to get access to the internet (ping outside etc) from the server itself,

About the router's PPPoE , i tried that thing,, it was working (on the location where i decided to use
debian linux) now there I was able to access net from debian. Problem there I faced was with
masquerading few machines . I used shorewall firewall there, proxy content/virus filter worked fine,
but masquerade,, it didn't worked. Now  I gave them a redhat based server. But still want to use
debian. First step starts threw configuring my own pppoe on debian in a working condition, for obvious
reasons I want to use debian linux boxes configurations.
Same configurations are working fine on rhel/fedora. I configured it's pppoe and logs are similar as i showed
in my previous posting of debian logs.
Thank you for support

Router connected to ISP,

Then why are you connecting through the router? How about:

ISP --> Eth0 -- Eth1 --> router --> home lan

This way, your computer with Eth0 and Eth1 connects to your ISP via ppp0 
and Eth1 is on your home lan. You can then use the router as a switch or 
a router. But you will need to do dns masquarading in your computer 
connecting to your ISP.
