PPPoE Session Limiting on Inner QinQ VLAN

PPPoE Session Limiting on Inner QinQ VLAN

The PPPoE Session Limiting on Inner QinQ VLAN feature allows a service provider to limit each customer to one PPP over Ethernet (PPPoE) client in use by providing the ability to limit the number of PPPoE over QinQ (IEEE 802.1Q VLAN tunnel) sessions based on the inner VLAN ID configured under a subinterface. This capability eliminates the need to configure large numbers of subinterfaces.

Prerequisites for PPPoE Session Limiting on Inner QinQ VLAN

  • PPPoE server functionality must be configured.
  • The PPPoE over IEEE 802.1Q VLANs feature must be configured.

Restrictions for PPPoE Session Limiting on Inner QinQ VLAN

  • Do not configure the inner VLAN session limit to be greater than the outer session limit.

Information About PPPoE Session Limiting on Inner QinQ VLAN

Benefits of PPPoE Session Limiting on Inner QinQ VLAN

  • Facilitates the ability to provision thousands of PPPoE over QinQ sessions having unique inner VLANs using simpler and easier to manage configurations.
  • Allows service providers to limit PPPoE sessions based on the QinQ inner VLAN ID.

Feature Design of PPPoE Session Limiting on Inner QinQ VLAN

Prior to the PPPoE Session Limiting on Inner QinQ VLAN feature, PPPoE session limiting required a QinQ subinterface to be configured for each QinQ inner VLAN to be session limited, resulting in configuration requirements that did not scale to large numbers of QinQ VLAN ID pairs. The PPPoE Session Limiting on Inner QinQ VLAN feature adds broadband remote access server (BRAS) capability for configuring a single subinterface for all the unique inner VLAN IDs per outer VLAN while limiting one session per inner VLAN.

The figure below shows a typical implementation of the PPPoE Session Limiting on Inner QinQ VLAN feature.

How to Configure PPPoE Session Limiting on Inner QinQ VLAN

Configuring PPPoE Session Limiting on Inner QinQ VLAN

Perform this task to configure PPPoE over QinQ session limiting and allows limiting, which allows you to limit the number of QinQ inner VLAN connections for each customer.

SUMMARY STEPS

    1.    enable

    2.    configure terminal

    3.    bba-group pppoe group-name

    4.    sessions per-vlan limit outer-per-vlan-limit inner inner-per-vlan-limit

    5.    end


DETAILED STEPS
     Command or ActionPurpose
    Step 1 enable


    Example:
    Router> enable
     

    Enables privileged EXEC mode.

    • Enter your password if prompted.
     
    Step 2 configure terminal


    Example:
    Router# configure terminal
     

    Enters global configuration mode.

     
    Step 3 bba-group pppoe group-name


    Example:
    Router(config)# bba-group pppoe group 1
     

    Creates a PPPoE profile and enters the bba-group configuration mode.

     
    Step 4 sessions per-vlan limit outer-per-vlan-limit inner inner-per-vlan-limit


    Example:
    Router(config-bba-group)# sessions per-vlan-limit 400 inner 1
     

    Configures inner and outer VLAN limits.

     
    Step 5 end


    Example:
    Router(config-bba-group)# end
     

    (Optional) Exits the current configuration mode and enters the privileged EXEC mode.

     

    Troubleshooting Tips

    The following commands can help troubleshoot PPPoE session limiting:

    • debug pppoe error
    • show pppoe session
    • show pppoe summary

    Configuration Examples for PPPoE Session Limiting on Inner QinQ VLAN

    PPPoE Session Limiting on Inner QinQ VLAN Example

    The following example shows how to enable PPPoE over QinQ session limiting on Fast Ethernet interface 1/0/0.1 with outer VLAN ID 10 and a unique inner VLAN ID for each session.

    Router(config)# bba-group pppoe group1	
    Router(config-bba-group)# virtual-template 1
    Router(config-bba-group)# sessions per-vlan limit 1000 inner 1
    Router(config)#interface eth1/0/0.1
    Router(config-subif)# encapsulation dot1q 10 second-dot1q any
    Router(config-subif)# enable group group1
