Default pppoe

Hi to all. I have one big problem with my OpenBSD box. I connect to my isp over pppoe. With FreeBSD I did not have any problems but since I use OpenBSD I can not connect anymore. My ppp.conf look like:
set log Phase tun command # you can add more detailed logging if you wish
set ifaddr

set device "!/usr/sbin/pppoe -i rl0"
enable dns
set authname kaschei
set authkey pass
disable ipv6cp
set dial
set login
add default HISADDR

So my questions are What is wrong and How to configure pppoe in OpenBSD. Thanks in advance

It's been a long time since I used ADSL, but one thing I remember is that you need to bring the interface up.

# echo "up" > /etc/hostname.rl0 # or ifconfig rl0

You might also want to try out the kernel pppoe(4) client if you're unable to figure out pppoe(8).
