I'm setting some PPPoA pvcs and I'd like to permit customers to configure their CPEs for either static or dynamic IP addresses. All the "customers" in this scenario are part of the same company with centralized IP mgmt, so there's no need to enforce IP allocation methods. Some sites will want static IPs and others won't need them. Here's my 7206VXR config:

interface Loopback101

ip address end

interface ATM1/0.1396 point-to-point

pvc 1/396

encapsulation aal5mux ppp Virtual-Template2

interface Virtual-Template2

description test template

ip vrf forwarding TestCo

ip unnumbered Loopback101

no ip redirects

no ip unreachables

no logging event link-status

peer default ip address pool TestCo


ip local pool TestCo

Unfortunately when there's a pool configured in the template, an IP is assigned from the pool regardless of how the CPE is configured. In addition, all CPEs are Actiontec GT701s, which don't provide much debug info. Any ideas?

what would be issue for you guys to just use another VT? It seems to me you are individually configuring each pvc anyway, as opposed to using ranges, for example.

I had already defined a new template for this purpose. At first it seemed as if dynamic and static CPE configurations were mutually exclusive but, after letting it sit for a few days, it is working fine. I'm not sure what, if anything, had changed but it's working now. Thanks anyway..
