PPPoE is short for Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet. Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) is commonly used by analog modems for communication over a phone line. PPPoE allows PPP communications to travel through an Ethernet interface. This method is used primarily for DSL modems.
To configure EnGarde to work with your PPPoE device start by connecting your PPPoE device via the cable supplied with the device, to the ethernet card that will be configured for PPPoE.
If the ethernet device to be used for PPPoE was not configured at installation time the WebTool can be used to accomplish this. Starting in System Management select Network Configuration. A static or DHCP device can be changed to a PPPoE device from here. Refer to Section on page for details on how this is done.
The PPPoE specific configuration is now complete. There are now some general configuration requirements that will need to be made. These can be found in the following section, Common Configuration Requirements.
