Ok, I need to install Linux on my system due to demand and I need to get Apache up and running again, but there is one problem.... My ISP (Verizon) Uses WinPOET to connect me, I have deleted the WinPOET and I currently use RASPPPoE to connect... Im just wondering if there is a way to do this in Linux (RedHat 7.3)... If there is no such way, Is there another way that I can connect to my ISP, Its DSL so all information is routed through my NIC. So to dial out (currently) I have to dial 111-1111 (standard number in NYC for DSL connections) and im connected..... Before in Linux I tried to use the PPPDialer but that didnt work, any suggestions?
Any help is appreciated

I take it you don't have a hardware DSL router you could use to connect it automatically? If you don't, you can use Roaring Penguin (http://www.roaringpenguin.com/pppoe/). I think that's what you're looking for. For more info on different PPPoE programs, check out http://www.dslreports.com/pppoe, though, as far as I know, RoaringPenguin is the only (useful) PPPoE program for Linux.
