Version 3.1 of rp-pppoe has been released.  It is the successor to 3.0.

rp-pppoe is a user-mode (and kernel mode, on Linux 2.4) client and
server for the Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet, a protocol used
by many ADSL service providers.  It runs on standard Linux kernels
NetBSD and Solaris.  rp-pppoe is released under the GNU General Public
License, and can be obtained from:

        http://www.roaringpenguin.com/pppoe/

Changed from Version 3.0 to 3.1:

o Security fix to server.  It now correctly rejects PADT's from incorrect
MAC addresses.  If you are using the server, you are strongly urged to upgrade.

o New server features: Server can now listen on multiple interfaces.  It
can randomize session numbers, and delays reuse of a session number as long
as possible.

o Kernel-mode PPPoE is better-documented, and works with Michal Ostrowski's
latest patched PPP suite (ppp-2.4.1-pppoe2.tgz).

1. rp-pppoe 3.2 -- Robust PPPoE suite for Linux

Version 3.2 of rp-pppoe has been released.  It is the successor to 3.1.

rp-pppoe is a user-mode (and kernel mode, on Linux 2.4) client and
server for the Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet, a protocol used

Changed from Version 3.1 to 3.2:

o Client used to incorrectly accept PADT's from any MAC address (and
if the Ethernet interface is in promiscuous mode, to any MAC address.)
This has been corrected.

o Minor fixes to "install" target for Turbolinux.
