Configure Juniper SSG5 for PPPOE with bellsouth router
Posted on 2010-09-03
I have a SSG5 juniper router and a Bellsouth Motorola DSL Wifi router. Bellsouth tells me it is running PPPOE for internet authentication and I need to put it in Ethernet Bridged mode to pass the internet traffic through the Juniper. I have the phone line into the DSL router (obviously), the ethernet line into eth0/0 on the Juniper and then eth0/2 (Trusted Zone) plugged into the switch.
Bellsouth geve me the steps to put the router in bridged mode, I did those. I configured a PPPOE name for the Juniper connection and once the router was in bridged mode the firewall did get the bellsouth IP address, it auto assigned a route from 0.0.0.0 to a public gateway 72.x.x.x, and the PPPOE connection said connected....
No internet access?
I added a blanket policy from untrust to trust ANY/ANY and trust to untrust ANY/ANY
Still no internet?
There was a PPPOE time out message in the event screen, I think it said PADI time out... I think it was PADI? fuzzy on that message.
I called juniper and they told me the router was PPPOA and I needed an ADSL firewall (SSG20). I have spoken to bellsouth again and they said it was in fact PPPOE. what can I look for to tell who is right/wrong, and get this internet connection working? If more info is needed just let me know what is needed and I will give it a shot.
