Hello Rojer,


1) if the wan interface is an ATM over ADSL the router needs to encapsulate the PPPoE frames inside AAL5 ATM PDUs to send out to the broadand NAS


2) but it is also possible that the WAN interface is an ethernet interface and so you see only the commands to run PPPoE over the ethernet interface.

the pppoE frames can then be sent to an external modem that performs bridging between ethernet and DSL link


3) or it can be a L2 lan based hand-off and no modem is needed


see for case 2

and the reference to config guide

- why some doc configure pppoe with atm subinterface point-to-point if i configure on atm physical interface, is it not point-to-point connection or it's not correct ?

Hello Rojer,

atm physical interface is treated as point-to-multipoint your understanding is correct.


Actually, point-to-point subifs can be easier to use they say the associated single vpi/vci is the exit point for everything
