Re: PPPoE & IPv6

With IPv4 we assign PPPoE users a single IPv4. We also have proxy ARP enable on the PPPoE servers Internet gateway facing interface. When the gateway does an ARP request the PPPoE server answers on behalf of the PPPoE user with that IP.

How does this work on PPPoE user with an IPv6 prefix?

Re: PPPoE & IPv6

>>remote-address - this is for ipv4 address

So this routes and assigns the PPPoE client the IPv4 IP.

>>remote-ipv6-prefix - this one is for ipv6 prefix

So this routes the IPv6 subnet and assigns the subnet to the PPPoE client? So does it also tell the PPPoE client what its subnet is?
