PPPoe with Static IP

Answered Question
Aug 8th, 2008

This is my first go with configuring PPPoe on a ASA 5505. We will be using a Static WAN IP Address. Does anyone see ANY issues with this configuration?

Please see attached for current config.

Thanks Mucho!!!!

I have this problem too.

Using PPPoE with a Fixed IP Address

You can also enable PPPoE by manually entering the IP address, using the ip address command from interface configuration mode in the following format:

hostname(config-if)# ip address ipaddress mask pppoe

This command causes the security appliance to use the specified address instead of negotiating with the PPPoE server to assign an address dynamically. Replace ipaddress and mask with the IP address and subnet mask assigned to your security appliance.

For example:

hostname(config-if)# ip address outside 201.n.n.n 255.255.255.0 pppoe

u config looks good

and check this note also important

The setroute option is an option of the ip address command that you can use to allow the access concentrator to set the default routes when the PPPoE client has not yet established a connection. When using the setroute option, you cannot have a statically defined route in the configuration

good luck

Marwanshawi, yes, I was check it out earlier but was alittle confussed on where the Static Wan IP is placed. Please see the following:

interface Vlan2

description OUTSIDE_TO_ATT-DSL

nameif outside

security-level 0

pppoe client vpdn group att_dsl

ip address 70.xxxx.xxx.xxx 255.255.255.248 pppoe

Is this where it goes???

Thanks Mucho!!!!
