Cisco Router PPPoE Dialer Commands

Using PPPoE Dialer Commands in a Cisco router

Using PPPoE dialer commands in your Cisco router to authenticate with your ISP is not quite as simple as I once thought it would.  Here is a simple explanation and set of PPPoE dialer commands to get you pointed in the right direction.

This is a simple example doing just that:

vpdn enable

vpdn-group 1
interface FastEthernet0/0
 no ip address
 pppoe enable group global
 pppoe-client dial-pool-number 1
 no cdp enable
interface Dialer1
 ip address negotiated
 ip nat outside
 ip virtual-reassembly in
 encapsulation ppp
 dialer pool 1
 dialer-group 1
 ppp authentication chap pap callin
 ppp chap hostname <username>
 ppp chap password <Password>
 ppp pap sent-username <username> password <Password>
