Hi there,
Currently all DSL in the UK is done via PPPoA, however BT expect to be trialling a PPPoE service in a few months' time, we will announce any relevant information to you at this time.
We don't support IPSec at the moment, I'm afraid.
Regards,
Mike

RE: PPPoE connection?

Well for a number of users not a lot. Its a different method of delivering broadband to end users. PPPoE is better, I quote from a faq below.

"Several alternative architectures are available, point-to-point protocol over ATM (PPPoA), and point-to-point protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE). While each of these architectures may have potential in certain applications, PPPoE meets the broadest range of requirements and enables service providers to utilize current hardware while leveraging investments in legacy provisioning and billing systems."

If you want to see the FAQ which gives a good basic idea of PPoE have a look at http://www.nts.com/library/why_pppoe.html

Kind Regards

Kevin

Which IPSec setting do I need to use? "Client", "Secure Server" or Server"? I'm using W2K.
