       pppoeconf — configures a PPPoE (ADSL) connection


       pppoeconf [-nox]  [iface]


       The pppoeconf program is user-friendly dialog based setup tool for pppd
       (and pppoe      if needed). It will look for  existing  ethernet  cards
       and  look  for  ADSL  hardware connected to one of them. You can add an
       interface name iface to force pppoeconf to use it.  Then  it  will  get
       some  login  info  and  do  some  minor  modifications  to make working
       settings. Note that you can use ESC key to exit program when you wan.


       -nox      Force ncurses use.
