Re: DHCP clients don't activate over VPN

I am afraid this is a misconception. If you use BCP in PPP connections, it doesn't switch the tunnel over from L3 mode to L2 one. It creates an L2 tunnel in addition to the basic L3 one, which is totally independent from it. So the IP address indicated in secret or profile is assigned to the L3 int...

the problem is with the ppp profile definition: /ppp profile add bridge=hangmaffia_vpn_bridge comment=SITE-TO-SITE-Layer2-VPN local-address=10.11.0.1 name=hangmaffia_vpn if you do BCP, you may not have _any_ IP address configured on any PPP interfaces. so if you want to have IP addresses, just stick...
