Unanswered Question
Jan 13th, 2009

Hi to all!

It is possible to run MLPPP over Ethernet dot1q subinterfaces?

I fact, 2 PPPoE sessions on Multilink.

On the customer site I have a 1841 with 2 ADSL WICs.

This 2 PVC's are terminated on the 7600 on 2 VLANs..

Thanks and regards,


I have this problem too.

It is not possible to run MLPPP over Ethernet dot1q subinterfaces.

PPPoE does not support multilink PPP.

thanks for post.

What are the best solution to achieve a load-balancing? I see only CEF load-balancing as solution...

Any other idea?

Thanks and regards,

If you are looking to loadbalnce the wan links its MLPPP.

In LAN you can use etherchannel.
