5 users limitation using PPPoE on cisco??

Answered Question

Hello,

I am trying to use a cisco as a pppoe server. The problem is that its not able to connect mor e than 5 users at a time. I thought the cisco(3620) had some problems and used another (2610) with the same result. What could be the problem?

TIA

This will happen when using an ip address on the VT itself, instead make it ip unnumbered.

You have:

interface Virtual-Template10

ip address 192.168.125.125 255.255.255.252

Change to:

interface loopback 100

ip address 192.168.125.125 255.255.255.252

interface Virtual-Template10

ip unnumbered loopback 100

Please post further questions in the Ask-the -expert session I am holding.

Thanks,

Mak

Yahoooo!! Success at last.. Thanks a lot Mak. But I would love to know the reason behind it. So even changing the subnet on VT to /24 would have had no effect then?
