PPPoE Server with DHCP

Unanswered Question
Oct 19th, 2007

I am helping my customer to test the PPPoE solution. The requirement is that she like to have a PPPoE server (7200), enable the DHCP pool on the router. The PPPoE client (1811) should receive the IP address through the DHCP and with subnet mask (/24) so that routing protocol can enable between the PPPoE server and client.

We test with some initial configuration but not success to obtain DHCP address from the pool.

On PPPoE server router,


ip dhcp pool DHCP-PPP




interface FastEthernet0/1

no ip address

duplex auto

speed auto

pppoe enable group global


interface Virtual-Template1

ip address

peer default ip address dhcp-pool DHCP-PPP

ppp authentication pap


However, the router pppoe client cannot obtain the dhcp address.

If I use the peer local pool, not dhcp pool, I can only assign /32 address to the client. i.e.

interface Virtual-Template1

ip address

peer default ip address local TEST authentication pap


ip local pool TEST

Is there any method to achieve the requirement?

I have this problem too.

Hi Chow

Just to let you know, I solved it with the following RADIUS attribute to enable the client to get a address out of a ip local pool TEST:

Attribute: cisco-av-pair

Value: ip:addr-pool=TEST

Best regards
