Transparente bridging with pppoe

Unanswered Question
Aug 9th, 2010

Hi people

I wonder what device should I buy to do pppoe dialing with TB in a fiber link so that i can use the public IP in the firewall that was behind. This diagram

isp ---> device dialing pppoe ( no adsl ) ---> firewall ----> lan

i want to use the fixed public ip  in the firewall not in the pppoe client device.

I can do this? is it possible? which would be the model of device?

I can not, that's the problem, if I put the firewall in the cluster, which is what I need to do, I can not dial pppoe, so I need another device ( the firewall is a fortigate )

If your FW cannot do PPPoE, get a better FW.

You can bridge PPPoE no problem, but if your FW is unable to terminate it, then it is not useful.
