Updated rp-pppoe packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The rp-pppoe packages provide the Roaring Penguin PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) client, a user-mode program that does not require any kernel modifications. This client is fully compliant with RFC 2516, the official PPPoE specification.

Bug Fix

BZ#841190
Previously, the pppoe-server service started by default at each system boot, which was not intended as pppoe-server is supposed to run only when enabled by an administrator. This update ensures that pppoe-server is not started by default, thus fixing this bug.
Users of rp-pppoe are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
