PPPoE & PPP connections

Post by Eric Yun » Mon, 07 Aug 2000 04:00:00



Dear all,

I just completed the setup of MkLinux pre-R1 on my PowerMac 6100 and I
wanted to proceed to setup connection to internet. I have a normal US
Robotics modem connected to my serial port and a Cisco 677 cable modem
connected to my built-in network port.

Can anybody please direct me to the documentation or give me hints on where
I can find a way to setup anyone of this connections?

Thanks in advance.

1. ppp && PPPoE && ADSL && net && buffer(s)

Hello!
i have a freebsd box (4.8-RELEASE) and a italian ADSL (256/128 if i remember good) line.
sometimes my freebsd box (that i use as firewall in my little lan) became stalled.
no data arrive and with ping IP i get error about some buffers full.
in ppp.log i see a lot of:
Jun 24 22:45:39 firewall ppp[66]: tun0: Phase: Clearing choked output queue

i search with google on newsgroups but i don't find nothing that work :)

i put some info on the configuration, because i read a lot of question about this parameters :)

kernel config:
maxusers        64
options         NMBCLUSTERS=32768       #expand nic buffer

in ppp.conf:
add default HISADDR

netstat -m:
1/400/131072 mbufs in use (current/peak/max):
        1 mbufs allocated to data
0/182/32768 mbuf clusters in use (current/peak/max)
464 Kbytes allocated to network (0% of mb_map in use)
0 requests for memory denied
0 requests for memory delayed

netstat -t:
