Before you set up the PPPoE client, you must have done the following:
Installed Solaris 8 Update 6 release or subsequent releases on the client machines to use the PPPoE tunnel
Contacted the service provider for information about its PPPoE access server
Had the telephone company or service provider assemble the devices that are used by the client machines. These devices include, for example, the DSL modem and the splitter, which the telephone company rather than you might assemble.
