0000437: PPP* uplink types need the possibility to supply "additional ip addresses"
I have a PPPOE connection with a block of 6 addresses assigned to me. On previous versions of Endian I could go to Network-Aliases to create aliases for the other addresses. This option is no longer available in Beta 2.
I tried editing /var/efw/ethernet/aliases manually but it doesn't seem to have any effect.
No tags attached.

With version 2.2 you can add Aliases with the uplink editor Network -> Interfaces

When I try that, I get "Could not enable uplink. Maximum amount of PPPoE uplinks is reached".

I'm a little confused, because also in 2.1 it was not able to have aliases on PPPoE uplinks. Aliases were always only possible on STATIC uplinks.
Do you maybe have a STATIC uplink to an ethernet modem which then makes the PPPOE connection?

Aliases is gone completely, you can configure them now within the Interface editor by ticking on "Add additional addresses". But this option is available only with STATIC and PPTP uplink type.

We assume that ppp connections always receive the ip addresses from the provider. Maybe here it could be interesting to have also the possibility to add custom ip addresses, but we don't know if there are exist providers which allow custom ip address configuration by the user.

I know that it always said this was only for static uplinks but this always worked for me. I have an ADSL modem in bridging mode and my ISP has assigned me xxx.141.197.129 to xxx.141.197.142. By default, when Endian logs in, it gets the first address (.129)via DHCP from the ISP. If I then setup an alias for .130 I could ping that address externally. Even on beta 2 if I enter ifconfig ppp0:1 xxx.141.197.130, I can ping it externally. However, it does not appear as an interface under Firewall-Port Forwarding.
In IPCop 1.4 the same applied, except that the alias option was not on the menu, but you could navigate to the page manually and setup the alias.

In the meantime, do you have any ideas on how I could manually add in the aliases?

we will add this later for version 2.3 since this basically is a new feature and we are currently in beta test state for 2.2

You can hardcode it manually by adding the following lines to
/etc/ppp/ip-up (before exit 0 of course):

ip addr add ipaddress/cidr dev $IFNAME
