I have two connections at different places, provided by two different ISPs. Both are using PPPoE to connect.
When using Windows, I configure them in the same manner, except username and password of course. Both are working.
While in linux (debian), using Roaring Penguin's RP-PPPoE, one is working and the other is not. I can dial up, but can't ping anywhere.
And, there was a time I have a Windows box connected to the linux-not-working network, then connect my linux through VPN to it, then pppoe-start, it magically worked.
1) Is the provider blocking linux?
2) Why dialing up through VPN is working?
3) Is there a way I can work around, using only my linux? Say fake to be a Windows on the network?
