Red Hat Training

A Red Hat training course is available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux

8.202. rp-pppoe

Updated rp-pppoe packages that add one enhancement 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.


In Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, the adsl-setup script in the rp-pppoe packages was renamed to pppoe-setup. To assist users migrating from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, a symbolic link has been created to allow the old script name to continue to work.
Users of rp-pppoe are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which add this enhancement.
