Yep they work fine on Telecom UFB.

I would guess you haven't put your PPP dialler on a VLAN 10 interface.

I'm not 100% sure but I think the latest firmware has updated the Web GUI to allow you to create PPP interface on a VLAN interface.If you aren't too sure about the CLI I would give it an update first off and see if you can find the options in the GUI.

Otherwise default the unit and start from scratch on the CLI. Remember that is has auto-completion so start typing stuff and press tab and it will give you options that match what you typed. If you have know idea press '?' and it will display all available options.

Or, Log in...

 


configure

set interfaces ethernet eth2 vif 10

set interfaces ethernet eth2 vif 10 pppoe 0 user-id user@xtrabb.co.nz password 1234

commit

save

exit

 


Go off the top of my head. If somethign doesn't work just press tab to see the options.

That should get you authenticate but nothing else. You need a NAT masquerade rule, firewall rules (very important!), dhcp server etc.

Ubiquiti do have a pretty good wiki so I would just do a lot of googling if you can't figure it out.

Edit: In my example I used 'eth2' for WAN because by default it has the LAN address on eth0 so might as well leave it there.

I have a ubiquity edge router lite on Snap UFB. Yes you need to do the above if your firmware is older than Ver 1.5 In Ver 1.5 you can get it working from just the GUI. But note - that doing the above CLI commands will stop the firewall from working. And in Ver 1.5 there is a bug that means you can't reapply the firewall rules on an interface that is both a VLAN and has PPP. That bug has been fixed in Ver 1.6alpha.

Is your edge router the 3 port model? If so I can give you a copy of my config file. All you will need to do is edit it in Notepad to input your username and password. And then upload it. It already has the default firewall rules setup. So will work on Chorus UFB, Assuming that Spark use PPP for authentication.

And if you are setting it up yourself goto www.grc.com and click on the "Shields Up" link. This will run a port scan on your external IP addr so you can check that your firewall is working.

[edited to add]

Also has the required NAT rules ect. So it will just work.
