Setup PPPoE Server

Specs: Windows 2003
hi there,

For testing purpose, I need to setup a PPPoE server which allow clients to dial-in. I have now a Windows server 2003 PC with 2 NICs. One is configured as DHCP client and connected to Internet, and the other is configured static IP for VPN connections of my LAN users.
I've setup Routing & RAS server on my 2003 PC and both "PPTP" and "L2TP" are working fine. But I just cannot have my LAN users to dial-in vial PPPoE.

Thanks for any input...

Here's a link to a previous posting I made here when I had some trouble getting RRAS to work. There are some tips and links in there. Please reply back with specific descriptions of any problems you're having.

Assume that I already did an Internet search.

thx for the info.

I've configured Routing & Remote Access on my server 2003. So my LAN users are now avaiable to establish "PPTP" or "L2TP" to my server 2003 without problem. And I also enabled NAT on server 2003.

I saw a "WAN Miniport (PPPoE)" avaiable in my Routing & Remote Access console. But it doesn't respons to the PPPoE PADI sent by my LAN users. So I'd like to know how to make my server 2003 accept the PPPoE connection that is requested by the LAN users. thanks again....

I just got my problem solved. Here's what I did:

1. Remove "PPP over Ethernet" protocol from my NIC properties.

2. Stop Routing & Remote Access service

3. Re-install RASPPPoE with v0.98b (I installed v0.99beta previousely)

4. Disable then Enable my NIC.

5. Re-start Routing & Remote Access.

6. There's a "ISDN" device appeared in my RRAS device list.

I can now perform my testing...ha~

tks anyway....
