PPPoE Connection

Select the Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) connection that you use to connect to your Internet service provider (ISP). If you do not have a connection defined, click New, and then complete the New Connection Wizard.

 

Item Description

PPPoE connection

In the list, click the name of the broadband connection to your ISP that you want to use to connect to the Internet.

ISP user name

Type the name of the account used to authenticate the connection to your ISP.

Password

Type the password for the account used to authenticate the connection to your ISP. To verify that the password was typed correctly, retype it in Confirm password.

If you select an existing PPPoE connection, you can change the password for the connection. Before you make this change, ensure that your ISP has made the change in their settings as well.

I have a static IP address with this connection

Specifies whether your ISP assigns a static IP address to your PPPoE connection. You must then provide the required information:

  • IP address. Type the IP address assigned by your ISP for your broadband connection.
  • Preferred DNS server. Type the IP address of your ISP's DNS server used for name resolution across the Internet.
    If you do not specify DNS server information, name resolution requests must instead use root hints. It is recommended that you use DNS server information if it is available from your ISP. For more information about root hints, click Start, and then click Help and Support.
  • Alternate DNS server. (optional) Type the IP address of your ISP's secondary DNS server for backup DNS service when connecting to the Internet for name resolution. This option can be left blank. The IP address of the alternate DNS server cannot be the same IP address as the preferred DNS server.

Note

  • If you are using Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2000 with a PPPoE connection, and you want to either allow access to Web services on your server or host an Internet Web site, it is necessary to use a static IP address.
