Configuring PPPoE over a Static Ethernet Interface

To configure PPPoE over an Ethernet interface:

  1. Specify a Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, or 10-Gigabit Ethernet port.
    host1(config)#interface fastEthernet 4/1
  2. Specify PPPoE as the encapsulation method on the interface.
    host1(config-if)#pppoe
  3. Create a PPPoE subinterface.
    host1(config-if)#pppoe subinterface fastEthernet 4/1.1
  4. Specify PPP as the encapsulation method on the interface.
    host1(config-if)#encapsulation ppp
  5. Assign an IP address and mask.
    host1(config-if)#ip address 164.10.6.51 255.255.255.0
  6. (Optional) Configure additional PPPoE subinterfaces by completing Steps 3 through 5 using unique numbering.

Figure 10 illustrates this configuration.
