I'm setting up a transparent proxy/filter server, I've encountered many issues.
My Question. With a PPPOE DSL modem how do I negotiate a connection from my server. I am putting the server between the modem and the router (now just a switch and wifi AP)
The router did the PPPOE login for me.
My modem can be put into the following modes. PPPOE on modem, PPPOE on computer(router), & bridge.
I thought I could connect to the modem with a static IP with my 2nd NIC with the PPPOE on the modem. This didn't seem to work. For example the modem's ip is 192.168.0.1 so I set a static IP of 192.168.0.2 This has worked in the past to connect and configure the modem.
Any help would be great!
