Planning for DSL Support Over a
Some DSL providers require you to set up PPPoE tunneling for
your site in order to run PPP over the providers' DSL lines and high-speed
digital networks. For an overview of PPPoE, see Support for DSL Users Through PPPoE.
A PPPoE tunnel involves three participants: a consumer, a telephone
company, and an ISP. You either configure PPPoE for consumers, such
as PPPoE clients at your company or consumers in their homes, or you
configure PPPoE on a server at an ISP.
This section contains planning information
for running PPPoE on both clients and access servers. The following
topics are covered:
