Re: Router 2801 configuration

Thank you for your concern. This is the Fiber to the home GPON project. The CPE (Customer Premises Equipment) will have two Ethernet ports. We want to simulate the Internet Service Provisioning for each customer place. In our lab setup Router 2801 will act as ISP router with DHCP enabled in that. It is connected to the Switch 3560 and then the access equipment. The connection between 2801 and 3560 will be under one VLAN - X. If we configure the CPE ethernet port for VLAN - X and initiate PPPoE connection from a host computer connected to the port. The host computer should connect to the router 2801 in layer 2 through VLNA-X and get an IP address from the pool of IPs configured in the router 2801. We want to configure PPPoE and DHCP in router 2801...

thank u in advance

Re: Router 2801 configuration


this is your basic configuration guide for PPPoE server:

Then there are additional modules and feature depending on what do you want to do.

Note, DHCP is not used with PPPoE.

Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!
