Configuring PPPoE

Grrr.. I've been trying to set my 2611XM up to act as PPPoE server, so that I can test my PPPoE client config, but it's not been going well.

The client config is fairly straight-forward;

interface Eth 1
no ip address
pppoe enable
pppoe-client dial-pool-number 1
interface Dialer 0
ip address negotiated
ip mtu 1492
encapsulation ppp
dial pool 1

And i've found a few posts online about configuring a PPPoE server on a Cisco router, but not had much luck implementing it. I can get as far as creating a VPDN-Group, but my router does not accept PPPoE as a protocol.

The PPPoE / PPPoA server config is not actually covered in the ISCW Lab Portfolio (it only shows you how to configure the client) but I thought it would be an interesting exercise to try..

The other parts covered in the ISCW Lab Portfolio (and a few bits that I think are missing) are;

interface Eth 0
ip address
ip nat inside
ip tcp mss-adjust 1452
interface Dialer0
ip nat outside
ip nat inside source list 101 interface Dialer0 overload
access-list 101 permit ip any
ip dhcp pool LOCAL
default router
ip dhcp excluded-address
ip route Dialer0
