I am trying out IP Cop for the first time. I connected all the equipment and I cant seem to get a connection on the red interface

I had the FW working on a clearos box, the name and password were the only entries
in the FW and the VCI and VPI and LLC are set in the netgear modem

So i took a working Modem and connected it to the IPCop box in PPOE mode and it wont connect
at all I cant even ping out from the FW or even see what the red interface's IP address is

if i take the modem off and reconnect it to the Clearos box it connects fine.

thanks Terry

Is it an ethernet cable that goes from your external modem to your IPCop box?

What did you set the RED interface type as?

Did you turn your ADSL modem/router device into a modem/bridge ?
If no, then you'll prolly be troubled by the dreaded double-nat.
STF for details. :( (there should be an emoticon for yawn.)

Not to mention that IPCop can't control the PPPoE link unless the modem is in bridge (dumb modem) mode.

Sun Cobalt Raq 550 PIII 1.26ghz LCD replaced with 16x2 White Oled. Quad Intel 82546EB PMC on PCI-X adapter.
Raqcop-2.1.5 Flash Raid 1 with Two Transcend Industrial CF Drives and Syba adapters.
Bridged Actiontec 702 ADSL 2+ Modem using Frontier ADSL complete with blocked port 25 in both directions, sigh....
WLAN AP Addon using RT 3072 Chipped Premiertek Powerlink PL-18N connected to built in USB port.
