       pppoeconf — configures a PPPoE (ADSL) connection


       pppoeconf [-nox]  [iface]


       The pppoeconf program is user-friendly dialog based setup tool for pppd (and pppoe      if
       needed). It will look for existing ethernet cards and look for ADSL hardware connected  to
       one  of  them.  You  can add an interface name iface to force pppoeconf to use it. Then it
       will get some login info and do some minor modifications to make  working  settings.  Note
       that you can use ESC key to exit program when you wan.


       -nox      Force ncurses use.


       /etc/ppp/peers/dsl-provider is pppd options file for your dsl provider.

       /etc/ppp/pap-secrets  and  /etc/ppp/chap-secrets  are  described  in  pppd  documentation.
       pppoeconf may add lines to theses files.

       /etc/ppp/ip-up.d/0clampmss and /etc/ppp/ip-down.d/0clampmss  are  used  to  clamp  MSS  if

       /etc/network/interfaces is network interface file for your system.


       pppd(8), interfaces(5), pon(1) and pppoe(8).
