    PADM Messages Overview

    You can configure PPPoE to issue and display a PPPoE Active Discovery Message (PADM). The PADM message is a control message that servers send to clients. The clients may act on the control message, but are not required to do so. There are two types of PADM messages:

    • Message of the minute (MOTM)—Informs clients of interesting system information
    • URL—Typically spawns an Internet browser with the specified URL as the initial page

    You can configure the router to send PADM messages as follows:

    • Send MOTM messages to all clients connected to the router.
    • Send MOTM and URL messages to all clients connected to a subinterface.
    • Configure profiles to send MOTM and URL messages to new clients created when the profile is dynamically attached to an IP interface.

      Note: You can use the pppoe motm command at three different points in the configuration process: Privileged Exec, Interface Configuration, and Profile Configuration modes. You can use the pppoe url command at two different points in the configuration process: Interface Configuration and Profile Configuration modes. Note the differences described in guidelines below.
