Default DSL auto login

For my DSL, I have to first launch a browser and any page I try to go to is automatically redirected to a page on the network where I must enter my login name and password. After this I can connect to other services and web pages. Would there be any way to automate this process with FreeBSD at boot-time, and/or when the connection is reset?

Usually, you can enter your PPPoE username/password in the Web interface of your DSL modem.

I don't believe it's PPPoE. I think it's some sort of proxy server perhaps?

Could be. However, I think this is an issue you should check with your Internet Service Provider. They will know better than us what kind of setup you have...

I've worked with many ISPs here in Quebec and never saw a proxy or anything similar with username/password for the customers. Usually it's DSL with PPPoE... This may differ from place to place depending on where you live.


A quick and dirty fix would be sending your username/password via an HTTP request forged in a PHP script (for example) that would be ran by cron. But I suppose your provider will have a better idea than this one...

Good luck.
