delay (PPPoE Service Name Tables)


Hierarchy Level


Configure the PPPoE underlying interface on the router to wait a specified number of seconds after receiving a PPPoE Active Discovery Initiation (PADI) control packet from a PPPoE client before sending a PPPoE Active Discovery Offer (PADO) packet to indicate that it can service the client request

The router (PPPoE server) does not check whether another server has already sent a PADO packet during the delay period in response to the PPPoE client’s PADI packet. It is up to the PPPoE client to determine whether another PPPoE server has responded to its PADI request, or if it must respond to the delayed PADO packet to establish a PPPoE session.
