16.5 Using PPP over ATM (PPPoA)

The following describes how to set up PPP over ATM, a.k.a, PPPoA. Currently, the only hardware supported is the Alcatel Speedtouch USB ADSL modem

16.5.1 Installing PPPoA

PPPoA is supplied as a port in FreeBSD because the firmware is not distributable under Alcatel's license agreement.

To install the port, simply use the ports collection to install the net/pppoa port and follow the instructions provided there.
