					How to Work around a PPPoE authentication failure
affecting VPN routers with the help of the SS6300

#1- Physical installation:

    Connect network cable from LAN/WAN port of SS6300 to
     WAN/Internet port of VPN router.
    Connect all PCs to VPN router and/or Switch.

#2- Configure VPN router:

      Select “Static IP” as connection type.
      Enter 192.168.2.2 as IP address.

      Enter 192.168.2.1 as gateway.
      Enter 192.168.2.1 as DNS server addresses.
      Save settings.

P.S. If the VPN router’s range is 192.168.2.x, change it (e.g. 192.168.1.x).
