Hi all

I get a Cisco 1841 router, connecting the office through a CHAP PPPoE link:
[…]
interface Dialer1
ip address negotiated
ip mtu 1492
ip nat outside
ip virtual-reassembly
encapsulation ppp
ip tcp adjust-mss 1452
dialer pool 1
dialer-group 1
no cdp enable
ppp authentication chap callin
ppp chap hostname username@isp
ppp chap password 0 s0meStr0ngP4sswd
[…]

As a fallback solution, I would like to setup a CentOS Dual NIC 1U unit. I dont want to use NetworkManager, I’d rather use the bare interface configuration tools. I’m running CentOS 6.3

I looked for the right way to configure the internface:
– http://goo.gl/UaNBe: officiel doc, found no indication.
– http://goo.gl/DQ5Gk: using rp-pppoe, is it the right way?
– http://goo.gl/PTaes: seem to be right, but which package is it from?

One thought on - /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-xxx For CHAP PPPoE

  • I am sure someone has something more current, I think my old box was running C5.3 or even earlier. I saved the control files off it and my ifcfg-ppp0 was:

    USERCTL=no BOOTPROTO=dialup NAME=DSLppp0
    DEVICE=ppp0
    TYPE=xDSL
    ONBOOT=yes PIDFILE=/var/run/pppoe-adsl.pid FIREWALL=NONE
    PING=. PPPOE_TIMEOUT
