Terminate multiple PPPoE on single IOS Router

Answered Question
Mar 8th, 2008

Hello Everybody,

I am looking for a high-quality option to terminate 3 or 4 sDSL/aDSL PPPoE sessions on a single IOS device. Can I use the HWIC-4ESW in a 2801 for this idea? My experience with VLAN interfaces in routers are somewhat limited ...

Thanks for reading

robert

Another question: Is the WIC-1ENET module running in the current 1800 or 2800 models?

I have this problem too.

Hi Robert,

The HWIC-ESW is know to NOT work with mutiple PPPoE connections to different port. For that, you will need to add 1 or 2 ports FE cards dedicated to each connection.

The WIC-1ENET is not supported on anything but the 1700.

Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!

You can use the forwarding feature for this. For example, users coming in with [email protected] would be forwarded across the tunnel with the following configuration:

vpdn enable

!

vpdn-group l2tp

request-dialin

protocol l2tp

domain company.com <- forward all users that includes "@company.com" across this tunnel.

initiate-to ip x.x.x.x

l2tp tunnel password 7 061118

!

vpdn-group pppoe

accept-dialin

protocol pppoe

virtual-template 1 <--incoming pppoe clients will clone from vtemp1.

!

!

interface Virtual-Template1

mtu 1492

ip unnumbered FastEthernet5/0.1

peer default ip address pool pppoe

ppp authentication pap chap <--I MUST specify incoming authentication

method to identify users for transport over L2tp tunnel.

Thanks - its sometimes really hard to find the real facts between all the sales mumble on a website :-) - if you dont have a 4ESW laying arround - the feature-navigator is not always helping ..

Tanks a bunch -
