Maybe you can provide us with some more information, as like which
provider are you using in which country, what kind of hardware are you
using to connect to DSL (router/pci card?), which version of CentOS are
you using and maybe other info that might be of use ?
The case is that I used the GUI for my fedora box and now would like
to set the same to my centos server that would be the firewall. I use
eth0 to connect to my service provider's network. When I set up on
fedora I choose DSL and gave login name and password and worked out of
the box. I use CentOs 5.1 on my server.
I would like to use an editor better than the GUI to configure this.
My provider is Digi Tv in Hungary.
I wonder why do you need all this, isn't there a good description of
the config scripts somewhere?
We need all of that because how you set up your dsl depends upon how
your provider provides you with access. pppoe or pppoa etc. etc.
At any rate, as mentioned by others you can use adsl-setup to configure
your connection, or if you want to edit some text files manually you can
have a peek in /etc/ppp/
The files of particular interest would be, pap-secrets, chap-secrets,
You may want to man adsl-setup and make note of the various references
