Ubuntu Networking :: Autodial Pppoe Connection At Scheduled Time?
Jun 14, 2010
I've been trying to use gnome-schedule to create a scheduled task that would dial my pppoe connection automatically. For this I used "sudo pon" command (after configuring the pppoe connection using pppoeconf ). Although the command gets executed, but then it waits for me to enter the password. I want it to be automatic & shouldn't require me/anyone to authorize it. Is there a way to enter this password automatically for the scheduled tasks?
Also, I'd like to use network manager, instead of pppoeconf, for the same purpose. How can I set network manager to dial a pppoe connection at scheduled time?
i configured my laptop (running UBUNTU 10.04 LTS) for my broadband (bridge mode). I did that using PPPOE CONF command. Everything goes ok but only prob is i have to run this command and configure my net every time i restart my system. What i need is it should connect to the net whenever i use the PON DSL-PROVIDER and must turn off by using POFF..
i am completely new to the world of Linux. But i want to learn it. My problem is , i cannot connect my PC to internet. I have a shared broadband connection which needs username and password to connect to internet. I don't know clearly but its something pppoe connection through wan mini port. or xdsl. I contacted my isp but in Our country (Bangladesh) a very few people use Linux or Ubuntu so they cant help me out. i searched many forums,, googled everywhere but cant make it working. i tried some command like "sudo pppoeconfig" but still dont understand. I know there are many people who know how to do this. My Pc configuration:
My adsl modem is in bridge mode. I can connect to internet via pppoe . pppoeconf recognise the pppoe in eth0 and setup a connection and I can use it. How can I setup a pppoe connection using pppoeconf so that it uses wireless ? I set the wireless mode to bridge in modem settings. But, after that the access point stopped appearing in "aps in range" in network manager and I can't connect to it. pppoeconf also doesn't recognise wlan0 as a valid pppoe link . but dat is normal since i don't think it can check if wlan0 is pppoe without wlan0 being connected to the modem's wireless network. How can I connect to Internet with modem in bridge mode and connections via wireless interface of modem? Is pppoe over wireless even possible ? coz the datalink layer of wlan is not ethernet rite?
i have a routed and a PPPoE type internet connection, recently i tried a thing in terminal with the pppoeconf option since the network manager has problems with connectiong to the internet with a pppoe DLS connection, or anyway in my case it does not work. Ok i did the pppoeconf thing i inserted my pass and my user and left the program to do its thing, ok it all worked fine but then i restarted my system and suddenly the network manager did not want to recognize my network it hat as options some weird ipupdown options for connection and when i tried the pppoeconf thing again it did not work. what could i do to reactivate at least one way my connection, if i understood correctly the terminal type connecting and the network manager are two different things. now i am using my router and it should connect but the network manager still does not see the connection.
I have just installed FC11 from a DVD I created from an ISO.I also have FC10 (using here) and Windoze XP pro all on separate HDDs.I have not been able to configure my internet connection, when I try to create a new xDSL connection I get an error message; package needed 'rp-pppoe'.I don't now how to get the package without a connection.I have tried with and without Network Manager.
I am deployed to Iraq and the Earthlink ISP here uses PPPoE to configure a connection to their wireless broadband. His english skills are pretty good and from what I gather, he's got a DSL connection that he's trying to connect me to. He showed me how he does it on a Windows machine but I can't figure it out on my ubuntu laptop. That windows machine didn't need any IP addresses or server names. It only used a username and password to connect. Of course a strong wireless signal detected was also pre-requisite.
I know my laptop works because I've had great success with it here lately, just not on the Earthlink service.I see their wireless is broadcast and I can connect to it. I just can't figure out how to post my credentials and authenticate.I don't see a way of entering my username and password because I don't know how to install (or configure) for PPPoE.I did use the pppoeconfig and got to the part where I add my username and password, but most of what's going on up to and after that, I do not have the knowledge base to use. So I figured that allowing the defaults and recommended settings would be acceptableYou'll have to forgive me if I've asked another dumb question here. I'm another one of those Linux enthusiasts who is learning and I'm just not willing to switch back to MS just to get internet while deployed.
I have an internet connection which requires pppoe setup to login with the specified username and password ip address is dynamic.Above are the screenshots for your reference for which I establish the internet connection.the pppoe settings can be done through "sudo pppoeconf" but for the screenshot No. 2.what is the procedure? I need to specify the service name for my internet connection.how to configure my internet connection.
I cant get my wired internet connection to work. The command 'dpkg -s pppoeconf' returns ' installed ok installed'. My connection is through a router which is probably in a semi-bridge mode and I need to dial a connection to get the net started. The connection Auto eth0 is setup properly with the correct cloned MAC Address (that of my laptop).
I've also executed 'sudo pppoeconf' and ran the whole series of steps which towards the end said that my connection will be set on boot. However, the net doesnt work directly and I dont know how to dial manually either. 'sudo ifup eth0' returns 'interface eth0 already configured'. I tried some 10-15 threads but none worked. Ubuntu is handicapped without internet.
I want to create a broadband connection in suse 11.4 , in the windows the connection Properly works but in suse ...i recently installed qinternet , it runs the dsl connection , and shows this massage : " connected , connection established " , but no internet
I'm trying to configure Iptables and I just want to block everything but http/https. However, my connection is pppoe, so I have the ppp0 interface. Pretty much every Iptables tutorial that I found don't teach how to deal with this kind of setup. I'm forwarding the ppp0 to eth0 and I could configure the input rules and they're working. After this, I need to configure the output but nothing seems to work.
The current working rules are: Code: Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT 7858 packets, 5792K bytes) pkts bytes target prot opt in out source destination 299 201K ACCEPT all -- any any anywhere anywhere state RELATED,ESTABLISHED 0 0 ACCEPT tcp -- any any anywhere anywhere tcp dpt:www 0 0 ACCEPT tcp -- any any anywhere anywhere tcp dpt:https 11 820 DROP all -- any any anywhere anywhere
Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT 0 packets, 0 bytes) pkts bytes target prot opt in out source destination 0 0 ACCEPT all -- eth0 ppp0 anywhere anywhere 0 0 ACCEPT all -- ppp0 eth0 anywhere anywhere state RELATED,ESTABLISHED Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT 10791 packets, 1951K bytes) pkts bytes target prot opt in out source destination
I don't understand what those "state RELATED,ESTABLISHED" rules do. Also, I don't know if this rules are secure, because i'm very confused about the ppp0/eth0 interfaces.
In the right upper corner of your screen,you can see if you have a network connection or not.Most of the time I do not have one according to Networkmanager (?).So I have to enable my wired connection manually.I already tried a lot to change my settings so I would have a network connection at boot,but it doesn't seem to work....Firefox is in Offline modus when I logon..
When I have video running and the video stops, I see that the connection is destroyed in about 5 seconds, which is what I want. If, rather than stopping the video, I pull the plug, I have seen it take 350 and 380 seconds before the connection is destroyed. Why is there such a large difference in the time to destroy a video connection between stopping the video and pulling the plug on it when using net filter connection tracking? How can I shorten the time for the connection to get destroyed when pulling the plug?
I have this strange problem. I can't setup my PPPoE connection through the kPPPoE. My ISP told me that this PPPoE has something like name server or something like that and i must use some other package to connect.
I have a Compaq Presario CQ61, instaled Ubuntu 9.10 and Windows 7 on it.
It works great except the PPPoE connection in Ubuntu, when i dial in Windows my download speed reach up to 91 Mb, rebooted in Ubuntu, downloaded same file from the same server with a speed of maximum 3 Mb, cheked in Windows again 80 - 90 Mb constant. I can't figure what slow's the internet connection in Ubuntu.
(NO iptables configured, NO HTB, CBQ ...etc configured) .
EDIT: I don't have any modem or router. I am using PPPoE directly from my PC. I didn't mentioned that I instaled Ubuntu two times but didn't figured out what was causing the problem, so I instaled Fedora 12 (64), this works fine and the speed reached 85 Mb. I instaled latest Ubuntu 10.4 on the same Laptop, the problem is not solved, the speed reaches up to 3Mb, when in Windows or Fedora reaches up to 95 Mb (yesterday).
PPPOE connection Timed Out-i have downloaded the rp-pppoe utility and installed for PPPOE connection.As per the instruction given with the utility i followed that .i have given pppoe-setup and given all the parameters required like service name , username ,password,firewall as none ,dsn as server an all the option .finally i got the message as congratulation you have successfully setup the pppoe connection.you can use pppoe-start and pppoe-status.
Is it possible to add the routes to my routing table for dynamic pppoe connections? I have this setup on windows 7 with power-shell scripting and some 3rd party commercial pppoe client called Cfos, but since I'm now trying to move away from windows to Ubuntu and cant use the same programs anymore and its getting abit tricky now. I'm not trying to do any fancy load balancing here just some basic stuff which should be possible. Here is same basic info.
My ISP resets my pppoe connection every 24 hours. However the advantage of this is that I can call out 2 or more simultaneous PPPOE connections through the same modem. This is my routing table I wrote which has 5 PPPOE connections [URl]..Id like this to be automated when the PPPoes reconnect and the computer restarts.
I would like to know how to configure a pppoe connexion? I am testing version 11.2 on live cd but I can't manage to connect my laptop. I used the "green plug software", I filled all the blanks (I am not a total beginner because I have been using Mandriva for a year) but afterwards I can't select pppoe instead of eth0 What should I do?
I read on this forum NET INSTALL PPPOE - Alionet, communaut francophone d'entraide openSUSE et SUSE Linux that the only reason that I can't configure a pppoe connexion is because I am using a live version of 11.2 as result that it only recognizes an ethernet connexion and a modem (everything I said, is said in the forum I linked, but you'll have to read it in french )
I try to configure a pppoe connexion to Tl2, my internet connexion provider. I live in France. My modem is a Bewan ADSL ethernet 100, no need to configure it.
I am trying to configure a computer to make it as DHCP server.Well, my current connection is PPPOE.So, I should assign one interface to connect as PPPOE, and the other will be broadcast DHCP server.What configuration shall I apply to the dhcp.conf file?
