Setting up an ISP, is a great idea ! I have also similar thoughts.....so let's share the common thoughts .....>
1. First of all bandwidth is a major topic, so one can get it form PIE, PTCL
give some guidlines to get the pipe ;)

2. Now looking at "Physical-Layer" (Hardware), plz guide how to get the necessary equipment, like cisco router (Is 2500 router still Alive or can be use as a starting point & cisco 1900 switch...???) How to get refurbished equipment (Is it recommonded to use such equipment in inital phase, than upgrade)? If someone can quote the prices....that will be great help.
3. At the Data-Link Layer (Connecting A 2 B....& so on) & Network Layers thing get complex...such as configuration issues, routing, switching, billing etc...etc......!
4. So the main & most important phase is configurations......! requesting all of Guru$ to :idea: 'share the taste of Adventure' :arrow:
5. Downlink....> Using Fedora or any linux distribution, How to configure the downlink to DCN or ISP.?
6. PRIs/E1: What's economical solution (regarding Cisco networking equipment, wot sort of solution will be suitable, router with BRI/PRI Slots…..? How much cost for small setup……?)
7. How to Configure E1/PRIs on router to established the connectivity.?
8. [ProXying] Squid is I think much discussed topic in this forum, so little bit Search will be very helpful.
9. DNS Stuff: I think DNS Setup has been discussed in some posts, howerver in DCN/ISP perspective may refresh new ideas. So little bit help may refresh the topic with Web-Server setup.!
10. Billing Server: I have also seen this post in our fourm, so FreeRadius may help it out...!
[Other$] Any suggestions/tips from Gurus wokring in DCNs/ISPs will be highly acknowledged.....with details of "HOW TO PROGRAM AN ISP" for "DUMMIES" :oops: :?: :idea: :lol: :arrow:
