#364 closed System Defect (fixed)

PPPoE doesn't work

Reported by: vans Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 8.2
Component: Network Manager Version:
Keywords: Cc: trac-bugs@…


PC-BSD 8.2 RC2. I have properly working ethernet interface. I've set up pppoe connection in usual way: on the tab entered login/pass, selected interface, service name leaved empty. So, even after reboot there is no connection. These were abstract words. So, the problem seems to be in that no profile name is given and in ppp.conf there is line (number 5) with only a ":" (without quotes).
So, if I comment these line (and next lines become 'default' profile) or I give some name to the profile ('inet' for example) and set this profile in rc.conf in ppp_profiles then all works ok.
Sorry that no example line from files given, I have no access to that PC. May be someone can test it, or I'll try to provide some more info a few days later.

So, here are some info.

[Paul@pcbsd-8429] ~# dmesg -a | grep -i ppp
Starting PPP profile:
[Paul@pcbsd-8429] ~# ps aux | grep -i ppp
root       11025  0,0  0,1  9124  1672   1  S+   21:09     0:00,00 grep -i ppp
[Paul@pcbsd-8429] ~# ppp -foreground
Working in foreground mode
Using interface: tun0
Warning: Bad label in /etc/ppp/ppp.conf (line 5) - missing colon
[Paul@pcbsd-8429] ~#

This is with the configuration, generated with the NetworkManager?.
I'll attach rc.conf and ppp.conf.

These are the lines dedicated to the ppp configuration in rc.conf:

[Paul@pcbsd-8429] ~# grep -i ppp /etc/rc.conf

Can you confirm whether or not this is still an issue in 9.0-RC3?

Replying to dlavigne:

Can you confirm whether or not this is still an issue in 9.0-RC3?

I won't be able to test it with the RC3 next two weeks. :(
May be, someone uses PPPoE and can test... So, can you ask the testing list?
