I'm trying to put my thomson tg516 into half bridge mode, it needs to be done via telnet as the web interface is garbage, but when I get to the point of creating the bridge interface I get an error where I put in the VPI/VCI settings .. apparently that setting is already in use. Below are the commands Im using.
ppp relay flush
atm phonebook flush
atm phonebook add name=BrPPPoA_ph addr=0.38 (it's this bit here were it fails - presuming I have to enter 1.50 here as thats what KC use not 0.38 but says it's in use)
service system modify name=PPTP state=enabled
When it says it's in use, it can't be because after issuing 'atm phonebook flush' that kills all connections and removes them.
And also in pfsense in PPPOA mode - Pfsense asks me for a Local IP and Remote IP on the PPPoA setup page - I'm unsure as to what to use here. I presume the local would be the gateway address to the modem and remote would maybe be my static IP from my ISP ??
pfsense doesn't do PPPoA, only PPPoE. Have you tried connecting with PPPoE instead? Most adsl will support it. I use a Netgear DG834v4 in modem only mode with my adsl, along with pfesene for the PPPoE connection.
