Sky UK - PPPoE-out with (MER) MAC Encapsulation Routing AUTHENTICATION

Sun Jun 14, 2020 11:30 am

I am trying to set up PPPoE on RBmAP2nD from ether1 that is connected to Huawei EchoLife HG612 VDSL OpenReach Modem.

I have extracted from my Sky Hub 3.0 (Model ER115) aka Sky Q Hub username/password and managed to connected and get working my spare
ASUS DSL-N16 in standalone setup using the Sky(MER)_ISP list ....

But no luck with MikroTik :(

I have VDSL Broadband Max from Sky.

Searching around I have found this on a Cisco Community forum:
As far as I read it MER is the same as RFC1483 Bridging. RFC1483 Bridging Baseline Architecture.

I am only beginner, so that does not make any sense to me :(


Searching more I have found another post on RedDit (year old) stating:
Sky use something they call MER (IPoE) to authenticate the hardware as well as CHAP credentials.
In order to pass authentication you need to clone your SKY router's WAN MAC address to your interface,
and then pass DHCP option 61 and 60 - client-id and class-id. Client-ID is the hex value of your sky username/password combination.


But I had working connection with ASUS DSL-N16 and no need to clone MAC address of the Modem ....



I am running 6.47 on the RBmAP2nD
And configuring via WinBox64bit v3.24
QuickSet - Home AP - PPPoE and I am getting msg.: link established | terminating... - failed to authenticate ourselves to peer
Tried to set Max MTU on pppoe-out1 to 1480, but still the same ...

Don't suppose you'd be prepared to share your RouterOS config on this ?

Sure, here it is:
client_duid79 = "0x00030001 + skyER115lanMACaddress" so 12c1ab12aa12 -> 12c1ab12aa13 = 0x0003000112c1ab12aa13
clientid_duid61 = "0x + 2.04.1919.R|003|ER115|B12341AB001234" = 0x322e30342e313931392e527c3030337c45523131357c4231323334314142303031323334
clientid = "0x + 12c1ab12aa12@skydsl|123a1a12" = 0x31326331616231326161313240736b7964736c7c3132336131613132
