I don't know, I have cable rather than dsl. but attaching an iptables
nat/firewall or using one of those little consumer nat devices, should
allow it to work with pppoe.
since voicepulse (for obvious reasons) do not want to allow direct
asterisk access to their monthly plans, I'm currently using x100p to
dial out through the sipura device. a little inelegant (in addition to
the extra d/a-a/d conversion, prerouting/dnat has to dump certain
netblocks directly to the spa2000, to allow *'s own sip server to
continue to work) but no problems in use or function so far.
also, currently only ulaw is supported on their consumer side (so I will
most likely go back to using vp-connect! once this free month is over)
-- some cable (or especially dsl connections) may actually not have
enough uplink to run that codec; and even with a traffic-shaper doing
its merry little magic, my uplink still gets hosed sometimes when using
the phone while doing some other net-intensive stuffs.
I imagine vp are working to support gsm and/or ilbc in their monthly
plans, but I've not yet heard back from customer service on this issue.
