    Am I missing something ? PPPOA & PfSense

    Hi All,

    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
    eth flush
    atm flush
    ppp flush
    atm phonebook flush
    saveall
    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
    saveall
    exit

    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 ??

    Anyone any Ideas ?

    Thanks in Advance

    OR - would the easier option be leave it as it is .. put my pfsense in the DMZ and turn off NAT either on my Thomson or PFSense ?

    OR - instead of using PPPoA config on pfsense just use the interface as a static & let the modem bring up the connection ?


    Thanks

    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.

    oh, easiest way to find out is to use the router as normal and change from pppoa to pppoe settings before you get more complicated by throwing pfsense in and bridge mode.
