Enabling Multiclass MLPPP

You can enable multiclass MLPPP on an MLPPP interface and create a specified number of multilink classes on it. A maximum number of eight multilink classes are supported per MLPPP interface.

Before you enable multiclass MLPPP:

To enable multiclass MLPPP and create a specified number of multilink classes on a dynamic MLPPP interface:

  1. From Global Configuration mode, create an MLPPP dynamic profile by assigning it a name.
    host1(config)#profile ppp-multilink-profile
  2. Enable multiclass MLPPP and specify the number of multilink classes to create.
    host1(config-profile)#ppp multilink multiclass multilink-classes 8

To enable multiclass MLPPP and create a specified number of multilink classes on a static MLPPP interface:

  1. From Global Configuration mode, specify the individual interface on which you want to configure multiclass MLPPP.
    host1(config)#interface gigabitEthernet 3/0/0
  2. Specify PPPoE as the encapsulation method on the interface.
    host1(config-if)#encapsulation pppoe
  3. Create a PPPoE subinterface.
    host1(config)#interface gigabitEthernet 3/0/0.10
  4. Specify MLPPP as the encapsulation method on the subinterface.
    host1(config-if)#encapsulation mlppp
  5. Enable multiclass MLPPP and specify the number of multilink classes to create.
    host1(config-if)#ppp multilink multiclass multilink-classes 8
