RE: [RadiusNT] RadiusNT for DSL
Wed, 2 Feb 2000 13:05:01 -0500


We are not doing DSL resale yet, but are getting very close. As I
understand the RedBack system they provide a PPPoE (PPP over Ethernet)
client that is installed on the clients PC. By doing this, it makes
their connection just like any other dialup connection that you are
already familiar with. They end up not actually using the DHCP for
the address, but get it from the PPPoE part.

While this design is not universal with RedBack, that is the way that
we are looking at doing it. I want to keep using RadiusNT since it
is already in with our billing system.

Let me know how it goes for you, I have not been able to find someone
who was actually doing Radius auth for DSL. Many make the claim they
can, but they don't and just statically assign IP's and such.
