Hi all,

could someone give me info if is it possible and how to configure PIX interface for PPPoE (to connect with our ISP)and if we can create IPSEc tunnel on this type of interface and how?

We now have IPSEc configured on this interface but with classic configuration for ethernet.

Thanks for help,

Configuration of the outside interface for PPPOE configuration example,

sanjose is the username and cisco123 is the password provided by the ISP:

ip address outside pppoe setroute

! --- Specify PPPOE as the method to obtain the address for the outside interface.

vpdn group xyz request dialout pppoe

vpdn group xyz localname sanjose

! --- Note that the localname (sanjose) is the username the ISP provided.

vpdn group xyz ppp authentication pap

vpdn username sanjose password cisco123

! --- Note that the password (cisco123) is the password the ISP provided.
