Re: Single-link MLPPP on Windows with Virtualbox (instructions)

There were many questionable infrastructure choices in ZeroShell. But it's still far easier to get up and running than doing it yourself from scratch.

awesome guide!

i got it working and running without a hitch, now my only question is what exactly i need to do when i start up my pc.

this is what i am doing:

1.start virtual box
2.starting zeroshell/mlppp machine
3.opening browser and opening 192.168.0.75
4.clicking setup, then network to see that pppoe connection PPP0 is connected

do #3 and #4 need to be done, and does anything need to be done in the virtual machine, or can it just sit at the main menu?

so far working good, and according to utorrent all my ports are forwarded properly (this had been done through my router previously, does it also need to be done in zeroshell?)

thanks

Once you've started the virtual machine, and let it boot, then it should be fine. No need to interact with it.

false alarm.

it was working perfectly and i was hitting some good speeds (100k+ with average seeds), but then i rebooted and started everything up again and now it is locked at 30k again.

is there anything i can check to make sure that it is configured properly?

would it have anything to do with my ip address (currently set to 192.168.0.65 according to 2wire settings page)? i have this set to obtain automatically in my network settings. i have dhcp enabled on the router, should this be disabled since zero shell is supposed to be handling the dhcp requests?

any help would really be appreciated, because i hate being stuck behind this bell throttle...

Guspaz,

Would this work under Parallels, or is virtualbox required?

Wow guys, I CANNOT THANK YOU ENOUGH!
I followed every single one of your steps and it worked like a charm! I'm downloading at max speed in uTorrent even though I have the RED exclamation mark indicating my port is not forwarded. Excellent instructions, so easy to follow, I really appreciate it guys! I'm guessing I have to forward the ports in my router and that should take care of the RED exclamation symbol in uTorrent.

Excellent work guys!

EDIT:
I'm sure I messed up somewhere. I rebooted my computer to get used to this and see if I encounter any problems and I did. After the reboot, I launched my virtual machine and then ZeroShell/MLPPP and after a few seconds I get the following error:

plugin rp-pppoe.so loaded
PPP session is 5810
Starting negotiation on EH00
remote message: access denied
PAP authentication failed.
connection terminated.
redial: pppd exited

it loops over and over again. where did I mess up?
I did reboot my router just before I rebooted my computer. I had to reboot the router after port forwarding.

EDIT (SOLUTION):
I went to my ZeroShell settings page (192.168.0.75) -> SETUP -> Network and then clicked on CONFIGURE next to PPP0. My TekSavvy username and password were changed back to default but the rest of the settings remained as they were. So I entered in my teksavvy account details and now it works again

Some things to try/check:

1) Did you follow step 27 (enable multi-link in the dropdown)?

2) Did you check the "Reject..." checkbox to make sure multilink is working?

3) Did you do a traceroute to make sure you're passing through the ZeroShell router?

4) Did you try rebooting your modem (keep it off for a few minutes)?

If DHCP is enabled on your 2wire, you're probably not going through ZeroShell, you're probably going through the 2wire.

It's not required, I just picked it because it's free for all platforms.

If you want to use Parallels, the instructions are very similar. Just set up a new 2.6 kernel virtual machine, and make sure it is using the equivalent of host networking (simulates a real ethernet card). To follow the instructions above, your VM software (Parallels) also needs to support VMWare disk images, or else you'll have to install ZeroShell yourself instead of using the pre-made VMWare version.

Yes, you'll have to forward the ports yourself (ZeroShell doesn't support UPnP, so uTorrent can't do it for you).

You can find instructions on that earlier in this thread (»Re: Single-link MLPPP on Windows with Virtualbox (instructions)).

Alright, I can't get this to work. The VM can't seem to reach anything. 'ping www.ibm.com' gives me an 'unknown host' message.

Is there some step I missed? I'm getting hung up on step 22.

Network properties in the web management panel says 'Connecting to PPPoE Server'...

Currently I'm going [computer -> dlink router -> modem -> internet] - should I be directly connected to the modem?

4 yes, this seemed to do the trick.

however, now when i start windows cold, the network shows the yellow triangle with "limited connectivity" warning. the internet or nothing will work until i force windows to try to repair the connection, then it connected through the virtual box and now everything seems to be working fine.

question: if i haven't changed anything on my other computers, will they run through the mlppp connection as well (assuming its running on the main rig), or do i need to install the virtual box on every computer i wish to run a mlppp connection on?

thanks again guys for all your help

Guspaz, people like you are what makes this forum great! Your instructions were awesome and everything is working fantastic. I just had a computer crash and things came up perfect after rebooting.

I have a question: there's an update patch for ZeroShell at

»www.zeroshell.net/eng/patch-deta···ls/#C100

Should I even bother?

You can try connecting directly to the modem. Also, did you do step 10-12? Did you select the right network device? ZeroShell is unable to connect to the net.

Probably has something to do with Windows bringing up the interface before ZeroShell has had a chance to start up. You'll probably have to keep doing that.

question: if i haven't changed anything on my other computers, will they run through the mlppp connection as well (assuming its running on the main rig), or do i need to install the virtual box on every computer i wish to run a mlppp connection on?
No, you only need one machine on your network running ZeroShell. As long as there are no other DHCP servers and all your other machines are set to use DHCP, things should just work.

So your PPP device didn't connect to the net? Did you complete steps 10-12 properly, and select the right network device?

It is a security patch. From the looks of it it's for the web interface.

As far as I see their should be no interactions so it should be safe to install. I haven't tried it my-self though.

That's what I gathered. However the computer doesn't seem to want to connect direct, I don't know why.

10-yes
11-yes
12-not quite sure if I did it right, but I'm able to access the web-management panel from 192.168.0.75...

There are a bunch of adaptors, two 'PCnet' ones, and two Intel ones listed... is this something common to the package, or what's on my system?

Yeah, none of the 4 changes anything.

From the ppp log:

22:34:23 Using interface ppp0
22:34:23 Connect: ppp0 /dev/pts/1
22:34:28 tcflush failed: Bad file descriptor
22:34:28 Exit.
22:34:33 pppd 2.4.3 started by root, uid 0
22:34:33 Using interface ppp0
22:34:33 Connect: ppp0 /dev/pts/0
22:35:04 LCP: timeout sending Config-Requests
22:35:04 Connection terminated.
22:35:04 Using interface ppp0
22:35:04 Connect: ppp0 /dev/pts/1
22:35:09 tcflush failed: Bad file descriptor
22:35:09 Exit.

rinse, repeat (when I have the router logged out from the DSL or logged in)

Those are what's on your system. You need to pick the one that connects to your modem.

If you don't know which one it is, you could try each of them.

I tried all 4 and nothing worked... but I managed to get it working direct to modem and it seems to be working. Trying step 22+ now.

Seems to be working now!

Is there any specific way of knowing if it's working correctly though? Just if the torrents go fast?

OMG I think it's working! You guys are a godsend, Guspaz! :D

I tried each of the virtual NIC settings (Bridged, HostOnly and NAT), but can't access the ZeroShell web page at 192.168.0.75 or ping the address. It works if I use VirtualBox, but I prefer to have all my virtual servers running in the same environment when they're all on the same computer.

What am I missing in the VMware setup?

You definitely need to use Bridged networking with VMWare. I don't have a copy, so I can't really help debug that, but make sure your PC is on the right subnet. You may also want to try an alternate simulated NIC type if it gives you options.

Never mind I got it working in VMware. Your ZeroShell instructions are excellent.
