I think there is something you can do about it -- fix your mpd.conf.
I've been trying to configure M0n0wall on a Soekris Net4501 to see how
it compares to my LEAF Bering setup. I am having the same problems with
my PPPoE connection as Hilton, despite the fact that my LEAF Bering
setup works fine. I checked the M0n0wall log files when the PPPoE link
comes up and I see this:
mpd: [pppoe] exec: /usr/local/sbin/ppp-linkup ng0 inet 22.214.171.124
There are clearly no DNS addresses in there, so ppp-linkup can't do much
with $6 and $8. However if you check your mpd.conf, it is not set up to
tell mpd to get the DNS addresses. All I know about mpd I learned in the
last hour, but I hacked your /etc/inc/interfaces.inc to include the
following two lines in wan_pppoe_configure() where you generate mpd.conf:
set ipcp enable req-pri-dns
set ipcp enable req-sec-dns
Now when the link comes up, the log shows something better:
mpd: [pppoe] exec: /usr/local/sbin/ppp-linkup ng0 inet 126.96.36.199
188.8.131.52 dns1 184.108.40.206 dns2 220.127.116.11
There we have the correct primary and secondary DNS servers addresses
finally. Ppp-linkup should be able to do something with this.
Unfortunately it still doesn't work and I wasn't able to figure out why.
I'm working one line at a time through your exec.php interface and it's
slow going. I tried running the above ppp-linkup command manually
through exec.php but for output I got back the HTML code for the
"execute command" page (WTF?) so I could not go any further.
If I may, I'll leave it to you or someone with a FreeBSD setup to do the
