Feature Information for L2TP Disconnect Cause Information


L2TP Disconnect Cause Information


First Published: June 15, 1999
Last Updated: November 25, 2009

The L2TP Disconnect Cause Information feature adds support for additional Layer 2 Tunnel Protocol (L2TP) disconnect error codes using attribute-value (AV) pair 46 as specified by RFC 3145. Prior to the introduction of this feature, L2TP hosts could not exchange PPP disconnect error codes.

Finding Feature Information

Your software release may not support all the features documented in this module. For the latest feature information and caveats, see the release notes for your platform and software release. To find information about the features documented in this module, and to see a list of the releases in which each feature is supported, see the "Feature Information for L2TP Disconnect Cause Information" section.

Restrictions for L2TP Disconnect Cause Information

This feature implements only error codes that are compliant with RFC 3145.

If a router receives AV pair 46 with a nonsupported disconnect code it is mapped to code 0, indicating that no information is available.

How L2TP Disconnect Cause Information Works

L2TP disconnect cause codes allow the devices functioning as L2TP hosts to exchange PPP-related disconnect cause information. Normally L2TP operation is isolated from details of the PPP session that is being encapsulated. AV pair 46 "PPP Disconnect Cause Code" is used to exchange PPP-related disconnect cause information between L2TP hosts. The information can be translated to the appropriate authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) code and relayed to the remote RADIUS AAA server.

Benefits of L2TP Disconnect Cause Information

When L2TP service fails or session establishment is unsuccessful, PPP-specific disconnect information provides valuable information that can be used for troubleshooting or accounting purposes. The lack of this information is a problem particularly when the L2TP hosts are not owned or managed by the same entities. The L2TP Disconnect Cause Information feature enables service providers to determine the specific failure reason, facilitating analysis and error correction.

L2TP Disconnect Cause Information Codes

Table 1 lists the supported L2TP disconnect cause codes from RFC 3145 and a brief description of the codes.

Table 1 L2TP Disconnect Cause Codes 

Code
Description
Global Errors

0

No information available.

Note If a router receives AV pair 46 with a nonsupported disconnect code, possibly from another vendor or a newer version of Cisco IOS XE software, it is mapped to this code.

1

Administrative disconnect.

3

Normal disconnection, Link Control Protocol (LCP) Terminate-Request sent.

Valid direction values are:

1—LCP Terminate-Request sent by the peer device.

2—LCP Terminate-Request sent by the local device.

LCP Errors

5

Finite State Machine (FSM) timeout error.

6

No recognizable LCP packets were received.

8

LCP link failure: Echo Request timeout.

9

The peer has an unexpected endpoint-discriminator for an existing Multilink PPP (MLP) bundle.

12

Compulsory call-back required by a PPP peer was refused by the peer.

Valid direction values are:

1—Required by the local device; refused by the peer device.

2—Required by the peer device; refused by the local device.

Authentication Errors

13

FSM timeout error.

16

PPP authentication failed due to a bad hostname, password, or secret.

Valid direction values are:

1—Authentication of the peer's identity by the local system failed.

2—Authentication of the local identity by the peer system failed.

Network Control Protocol (NCP) Errors

17

FSM timeout error.

18

No NCPs available (all disabled or rejected) or no NCPs went to Opened state. The Control Protocol Number can be zero only if neither peer has enabled NCPs.
