Hello,

I have just installed Scientific Linux 6.2 and I tried to connect to Internet, the same way I used to do in Ubuntu (and in Ubuntu it worked).

Right Click on Network Connections icon -> Edit Connections - DSL -> Add

Entered: Connection name, Username, Service, Password.

After saving the data, I got a message error:
Saving connection failed: (0). Can't write connection type 'pppoe'.

Any ideas / solutions?

Is there a file where one can edit this PPPOE connection and save it?

Thanks!

Issue solved, but in CentOS 6.2.

When trying to use (connect) eth1, I edited and then saved also DSL (PPPoE) connection... this time I could save the data. So, it worked - now I can connect to Internet.

I guess the same should be done also on Scientific Linux 6.2.
