The reason I wanted PPPOE setup is that the modem my DSL provider supplied won't pass through the traffic to setup VPN on the PIX device. The option they give is that you can setup the DSL Modem as a transparent bridge and then setup the router with PPPOE or PPPOA to authenticate instead of using the modem.
In looking at the link I provided there is a line, "PIX OS versions 6.2 and 6.3
do not support Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) and Point−to−Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) with
PPPoE." Does this mean I couldn't setup VPN if I setup PPPOE on the Pix 501? Also for PPPOE you need a group name. I have a username and password but not a group name that I see. Is that something the ISP would have or just something I make up?
I have a PIX 501 with a verizon provided Westel DSL modem. I am required to use PPPOE and use the PIX for remote VPN access. I have a dynamic IP addres so I use DYNDNS.com and a domain name for VPN connections.
You need a username and password. Here is an example of my confguration. I am running OS 6.3(5).
I've got a pretty much identical configuration (authentication is pap on mine) trying to connect to a Verizon DSL connection and I can't get the interface to come up. When you do a show vpdn session I get:
PPPoE Session Information (Total tunnels=1 sessions=0)
Remote MAC is 00:00:00:00:00:00
Session state is PADI_SENT
Time since event change 755 secs, interface outside
0 packets sent, 0 received, 0 bytes sent, 0 received
