Configure a PPPoE Interface

Let us learn to configure a PPPoE interface.
Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) is a configuration option for Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) circuits. You can configure PPPoE only on WAN ports and physical interfaces. You cannot configure it on sub-interfaces or logical interfaces such as bypass pairs or an interface with Layer 3 configuration, such as DHCP or static IP addresses.
Upon completing PPPoE authentication, the system establishes a connection with the DSL provider. In the event of PPPoE connection failures or termination, this PPPoE logical interface displays as down.
A logical PPPoE interface acts as the underlay interface for all Prisma SD-WAN-related features, statistics, counters, and configuration.
  1. Navigate to
    MAP
    Claimed Devices
    , select a device and click
    Configure the device
    .
  2. Select the
    Interfaces
    tab.
  3. Select a port.
  4. For
    Admin Up
    , select
    Yes
    .
  5. (Optional)
    Enter a
    Description
    .
  6. For
    Interface Type
    , select
    Port
    .
  7. For
    PPPOE Attached?
    , select
    Yes
    and then
    Save Port
    .
    PPPoE is now attached to an interface. Proceed to configure PPPoE attributes.
  8. For
    Use This Port For
    , select
    Internet
    or
    Private WAN
    from the drop-down.
  9. Select a
    Circuit Label
    .
    • To enable this port to forward direct traffic and establish secure fabric links as per the site network policy, select a Circuit Label from the drop-down.
    • If no label is selected, the port continues to be active and available for communication with the Prisma SD-WAN controller and for reporting statistics, but all network policy traffic ignores this interface.
  10. For
    Configuration
    , choose
    Negotiated
    or
    Static
    .
    • Negotiated indicates that the IP address is negotiated with the PPPoE server.
    • Static indicates that the IP address is statically configured. If the IP address is static, the system ignores any PPPoE server-provided IP address and use the static IP address instead.
