You are here: Monitor > Interfaces > PPPoE.
Use this page to view information on the session status for PPPoE interfaces, cumulative statistics for all PPPoE interfaces on the device, and the PPPoE version configured on the device.
This option is not available in SRX5000 line of devices, SRX4200, and SRX4600 devices.
To view interface-specific properties in the J-Web interface, select the interface name on the PPPoE page.
Table 1 describes the fields on the PPPoE page.
Table 1: Fields on the PPPoE Page
Name of the PPPoE interface.
Click the interface name to display PPPoE information for the interface.
State of the PPPoE session on the interface.
Unique session identifier for the PPPoE session.
To establish a PPPoE session, first the device acting as a PPPoE client obtains the Ethernet address of the PPPoE server or access concentrator, and then the client and the server negotiate a unique session ID. This process is referred to as PPPoE active discovery and is made up of four steps:
The access concentrator generates the session ID for session confirmation and sends it to the PPPoE client in a PPPoE Active Discovery Session-Confirmation (PADS) packet.
Type of service required from the access concentrator.
Service Name identifies the type of service provided by the access concentrator, such as the name of the Internet service provider (ISP), class, or quality of service.
Configured AC Name
Configured access concentrator name.
Session AC Names
Name of the access concentrator.
AC MAC Address
Media access control (MAC) address of the access concentrator.
Number of seconds the current PPPoE session has been running.
Number of seconds to wait before reconnecting after a PPPoE session is terminated.
Number of seconds a PPPoE session can be idle without disconnecting.
Name of the underlying logical Ethernet or ATM interface on which PPPoE is running—for example, ge-0/0/0.1.
Active PPPoE Sessions
Total number of active PPPoE sessions.
Packets sent and received during the PPPoE session, categorized by packet type and packet error:
Number of the specific type of packet sent from the PPPoE client.
Number of the specific type of packet received by the PPPoE client.
Information about the timeouts that occurred during the PPPoE session.
Number of the timeouts that occurred for PADI, PADO, and PADR packets.
Maximum number of active PPPoE sessions the device can support. The default is 256 sessions.
PADI Resend Timeout
Initial time, (in seconds) the device waits to receive a PADO packet for the PADI packet sent. For example, 2 seconds. This timeout doubles for each successive PADI packet sent.
The PPPoE Active Discovery Initiation (PADI) packet is sent to the access concentrator to initiate a PPPoE session. Typically, the access concentrator responds to a PADI packet with a PPPoE Active Discovery Offer (PADO) packet. If the access concentrator does not send a PADO packet, the device sends the PADI packet again after timeout period is elapsed. The PADI Resend Timeout doubles for each successive PADI packet sent. For example, if the PADI Resend Timeout is 2 seconds, the second PADI packet is sent after 2 seconds, the third after 4 seconds, the fourth after 8 seconds, and so on.
PADR Resend Timeout
Initial time (in seconds) the device waits to receive a PADS packet for the PADR packet sent. This timeout doubles for each successive PADR packet sent.
The PPPoE Active Discovery Request (PADR) packet is sent to the access concentrator in response to a PADO packet, and to obtain the PPPoE session ID. Typically, the access concentrator responds to a PADR packet with a PPPoE Active Discovery Session-Confirmation (PADS) packet, which contains the session ID. If the access concentrator does not send a PADS packet, the device sends the PADR packet again after the PADR Resend Timeout period is elapsed. The PADR Resend Timeout doubles for each successive PADR packet sent.
Maximum Resend Timeout
Maximum value (in seconds) that the PADI or PADR resend timer can accept. For example, 64 seconds. The maximum value is 64.
Maximum Configured AC Timeout
Time (in seconds), within which the configured access concentrator must respond.
