Encapsulation Type Lockout Based on DSL Forum VSAs for IWF PPPoE Sessions

JunosE Software supports the dynamic encapsulation type lockout functionality for PPPoE sessions that contain the IWF-Session DSL Forum vendor-specific attribute (VSA) (26-254) in the PPPoE active discovery request (PADR) packets. For interworking function (IWF) sessions that involve a set of functions to be processed to interconnect two networks of different technologies (such as PPPoE over ATM to PPPoE), the encapsulation type lockout for the PPPoE clients associated with the dynamic PPPoE subinterface column on the PPPoE major interface is determined using a combination of the Agent-Circuit-Id (26-1) and Agent-Remote-Id (26-2) DSL Forum VSAs, in addition to the media access control (MAC) address.

The DSL Forum VSAs used in the encapsulation type lockout process for IWF PPPoE sessions comprise Agent-Circuit-Id (26-1) and Agent-Remote-Id (26-2). The Agent-Circuit-Id VSA is the identifier for the subscriber agent circuit that corresponds to the digital subscriber line access multiplexer (DSLAM) interface from which subscriber requests are initiated. The Agent-Remote-Id VSA is the unique identifier for the subscriber associated with the DSLAM interface from which requests are initiated. For PPPoE sessions with the IWF-Session VSA, if you configured the pppoe auto-configure lockout-time command in Interface Configuration mode or Subinterface Configuration mode, the MAC address, Agent-Circuit-Id, and Agent-Remote-Id values are used together to identify a subscriber to implement PPPoE lockout.

If subscriber PPP sessions are transported on PPPoE, the PPPoE intermediate agent on the DSLAM adds the Agent-Circuit-Id and Agent-Remote-Id VSAs to the PPPoE PADI and PADR packets. The PPPoE implementation technique captures both the Agent-Circuit-Id and the Agent-Remote-Id sub-options from every PADR packet for every PPPoE session. Dynamic encapsulation type lockout is enabled by default for all IWF PPPoE sessions.
