Introduction

This document describes how to configure the Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) over Ethernet (PPPoE) client on the Cisco Secure PIX Firewall. PIX OS version 6.2 introduces this function and is targeted for the low-end PIX (501/506).

PPPoE combines two widely accepted standards, Ethernet and PPP, in order to provide an authenticated method of assigning IP addresses to client systems. PPPoE clients are typically personal computers connected to an ISP over a remote broadband connection, such as DSL or cable service. ISPs deploy PPPoE because it supports high-speed broadband access using their existing remote access infrastructure and because it is easier for customers to use. PIX Firewall version 6.2 introduces PPPoE client functionality. This allows small office, home office (SOHO) users of the PIX Firewall to connect to ISPs using DSL modems.

Currently, only the outside interface of the PIX supports this function. Once the configuration is also on the outside interface, there is encapsulation of all traffic with PPPoE/PPP headers. The default authentication mechanism for PPPoE is Password Authentication Protocol (PAP).

PPPoE provides a standard method of employing the authentication methods of the PPP over an Ethernet network. When used by ISPs, PPPoE allows authenticated assignment of IP addresses. In this type of implementation, the PPPoE client and server are interconnected by Layer 2 bridging protocols that run over a DSL or other broadband connection.

The user has the option to configure Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP) or MS-CHAP manually. PIX OS versions 6.2 and 6.3 do not support Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) and Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) with PPPoE.

PPPoE is composed of two main phases:

  • Active Discovery Phase—In this phase, the PPPoE client locates a PPPoE server, called an access concentrator. During this phase, a Session ID is assigned and the PPPoE layer is established.

  • PPP Session Phase—In this phase, PPP options are negotiated and authentication is performed. Once the link setup is completed, PPPoE functions as a Layer 2 encapsulation method, allowing data to be transferred over the PPP link within PPPoE headers.

At system initialization, the PPPoE client establishes a session with the AC by exchanging a series of packets. Once the session is established, a PPP link is set up, which includes authentication using Password Authentication (PAP) protocol. Once the PPP session is established, each packet is encapsulated in the PPPoE and PPP headers.

Configurations

This document uses these configurations.

In this lab test, a Cisco 1721 router acts as a PPPoE server. You do not need this in your home/remote office since your ISP hosts the PPPoE server.

Troubleshooting Commands

Certain show commands are supported by the Output Interpreter Tool (registered customers only) , which allows you to view an analysis of show command output.

Note: Refer to Important Information on Debug Commands before you issue debug commands.

  • debug pppoe packet—Displays packet information.

  • debug pppoe error—Displays error messages.

  • debug pppoe event—Displays protocol event information.

  • debug ppp negotiation—Allows you to see if a client passes PPP negotiation information.

  • debug ppp io—Displays the packet information for the PPTP PPP virtual interface.

  • debug ppp upap—Displays PAP authentication.

  • debug ppp error—Displays PPTP PPP virtual interface error messages.

  • debug ppp chap—Displays information about whether a client passes authentication.

Use these commands in order to enable debugging for the PPPoE client:


!--- Displays packet information.


501(config)#debug pppoe packet 


!--- Displays error messages.


501(config)#debug pppoe error 


!--- Displays protocol event information.

Debugging When You Use the ppp ms-chap Command for Authentication

When you configure PPP MS-CHAP authentication, this line is the only change that you need in the PIX (all the rest remain the same).

The vpdn group pppoex ppp authentication pap command changes to vpdn group pppoex ppp authentication mschap.

Enable debug for the new authentication method.

Known Caveats in PIX OS Version 6.2 and 6.3

  • If the default route is already configured, PIX does not establish the PPPoE because it cannot overwrite the existing default route with the default route that the PPPoE supplies. If you wish to use the default route from the server (setroute option), the user needs to erase the default route on the configuration.

  • You define username and one PPPoE server only.

Known Caveats in PIX OS Version 6.3

  • When you enable PPPoE and Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) and write memory performs after the retrieval of an IP address , the downloaded default route through PPPoE or DHCP saves to the configuration. The workaround is to perform write memory before the address downloads from the PPPoE server.

  • The PPPoE setroute option, which you use to generate a default route, is not compatible with the OSPF dynamic routing protocol on the PIX Firewall. The default route that the PPPoE generates is removed from the routing table when the "network" statement is configured under the OSPF process. The workaround is to use static routes.
