PPPoE Static IP Configuration in GUI
I recently had a little bit of trouble with PPPoE configuration, specifically under the circumstance of a static IP. Presently, there is no method to provide a static IP to the web interface when selecting PPPoE on WAN. It would be a highly useful, albeit small, addition to this option, as it is possible and would allow people to perform the action more confidently.
Doing this is possible by doing the following workaround:
[In GUI] Create PPPoE
[In console] cp /var/etc/mpd_wan.conf /conf
[In GUI] Edit File > /conf/mpd_wan.conf
[In Edit File GUI] Add line to section pppoeclient
set iface addrs !STATIC-IP !ISP-GATEWAY
[In GUI or Console] Restart WAN interface
This then allows the interface to be assigned the supplied static IP. Confirmed working.
