Help! PPPoE in PIX failover

Hi, my internet is a IP-8 PPPoE session. Now I try to install PIX515E failover but don't know how to config. If I use fix IP there is no default gateway in PPPoE setting. Somebody can help me?

Re: Help! PPPoE in PIX failover

Hello Amigo.

one of the failover requirements is to have static ip's configured. PPPOE is a dynamic way to get ip's, therefore failover will not support this.

Re: Help! PPPoE in PIX failover

You will need ASA ver 7.2 in order to do PPPoE. Also if it is a dynamic PPPoE connection, you may need the "setroute" command to set default route. See example below for dynamic PPPoE:

interface Ethernet0/0

nameif outside

security-level 0

pppoe client vpdn group bellsouthDSL

ip address pppoe setroute


vpdn group bellsouthDSL request dialout pppoe

vpdn group bellsouthDSL localname

vpdn group bellsouthDSL ppp authentication pap

vpdn username password 7779311

Thanks you very much! Because upgrade to high version is the next project so I will ask vender to change pppoe to fixed IP. Thanks!
