Creating PPPoE Tunnels for DSL Support

By using PPPoE, you can provide PPP over high-speed digital services to multiple clients that are using one or more DSL modems. PPPoE implements these services by creating an Ethernet tunnel through three participants: the enterprise, the telephone company, and the service provider.
