  1. apt-get install pppoe pptp-linux
  2. vi /etc/ppp/peers/dsl-provider edit "user", remove lcp-echo stuff (the network is slow enough that you won't want to drop your connection every time it lags a bit), remove defaultroute option
  3. pon dsl-provider

  4. vi /etc/ppp/peers/dsl-provider

  1. route add -host gw
  2. pptp call pptp
