Description Caroline A. Scolari 2001-05-01 14:20:28 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)

I attempted to install and use the Red Hat 7.1 installation disk version 
of rp-pppoe with the standard firewall.  It did not work. 

The suggested check "chkconfig --add adsl", also fails. Upon using the 
debug option for starting adsl-start  "DEBUG=1 adsl-start", I get the 
error:  "/usr/sbin/adsl-connect /etc/ppp/firewall-standalone No such file 
or directory".  Upon inspection, there is no file or directory by that 

The version obtained previously from www.roaring-penguin.com installs and 
runs properly.  

This may be an instance where you wish people to use a Red Hat firewall 
vs. the roaring penguin firewall, but I could not see documentation to 
that effect. 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install pppoe from Red Hat Disk
2.Follow the procedure in Canned Answer Number 196 from 
3.Input information, and select option personal firewall

Actual Results:  No sign of life from DSL modem.  Get eventual time-out.

Expected Results:  Expect to get flashing lights on DSL modem with 
connect.  The version downloaded from www.roaring-penguin.com does work as

It's fixed in rp-pppoe-3.0-2. You will find it later in rawhide or on

Note: please use chkconfig --add pppoe instead "chkconfig --add adsl" to enable
pppoe service
at boot time.
