Reserving a Static PPPoE Interface for Exclusive Use by a PPPoE Client

To reserve a static PPPoE interface for exclusive use by the PPPoE client with matching agent circuit identifier/agent remote identifier (ACI/ARI) information, you can assign a previously configured static PPPoE interface to an ACI/ARI pair defined for a named service entry, empty service entry, or any service entry in a PPPoE service name table. You cannot assign a static PPPoE interface directly to a service entry that does not have an ACI/ARI pair defined.

Observe the following guidelines when you configure a static PPPoE interface for an ACI/ARI pair:

  • You can specify only one static PPPoE interface per ACI/ARI pair.
  • If the ACI/ARI pair represents an individual PPPoE client, make sure there is a one-to-one correspondence between the client and the static PPPoE interface.
  • The static interface associated with the ACI/ARI pair takes precedence over the general pool of static interfaces associated with the PPPoE underlying interface.
  • You cannot configure a static interface for an ACI/ARI pair already configured with a dynamic profile and routing instance. Conversely, you cannot configure a dynamic profile and routing instance for an ACI/ARI pair already configured with a static interface.

Before you begin:

  • Configure the static PPPoE interface on a M120, M320, or MX Series router.
