service (PPPoE)


Hierarchy Level


Specify the action taken by the interface on receipt of a PPPoE Active Discovery Initiation (PADI) control packet for the specified named service, empty service, or any service in a PPPoE service name table. You can also specify the dynamic profile and routing instance that the router uses to instantiate a dynamic PPPoE interface, and the maximum number of active PPPoE sessions that the router can establish with the specified service.


The default action is terminate.


service-name—Service entry in the PPPoE service name table:

  • service-name—Named service entry of up to 32 characters; for example, premiumService. You can configure a maximum of 512 named service entries across all PPPoE service name tables on the router.

  • empty—Service entry of zero length that represents an unspecified service. Each PPPoE service name table includes one empty service entry by default.

  • any—Default service for non-empty service entries that do not match the named or empty service entries configured in the PPPoE service name table. Each PPPoE service name table includes one any service entry by default.

The remaining statements are explained separately. Search for a statement in CLI Explorer or click a linked statement in the Syntax section for details.
