FreeBSD users: Until recently I've been running a very low-maintenance FreeBSD router with FBSD 6.2.
The IP setup was a dynamic IP configuration with Verizon as my DSL provider in NJ. The connection was virtually trouble-free. I switched to a static IP about 10 days ago and the IP configuration no longer works. The modem for both IP configurations is a Westell 6100 modem running a Bridge protocol for both connections. When I plug the modem directly into the FreeBSD box or a Windows box and let the modem act as a router, the connection comes up with no problem. But when I configure the modem to act as a transparent bridge connection so the FreeBSD box can function as the router, the network connection is unavailable even though the PPP connection is up (according to the modem interface). I'm thinking that there has been a change on the provider end because of the conversion to a static IP, but I can't figure out how to set up the PPP connection in the the ppp.conf file. Here's what worked for the dynamic IP connection: verizon: set device PPPoE:rl0 set authname xxx set authkey xxx add default HISADDR Here's what I've set up for the static IP connection: verizon: set device PPPoE:rl0 set authname xxx set authkey xxx add default HISADDR set ifaddr 220.127.116.11 18.104.22.168 255.255.255.255 0.0.0.0 The rc.conf file is standard for setting up a PPP connection. Is a different setup required to configure a static IP to work with FreeBSD? Any feedback would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance. -- John Williams _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
