Looking for some config examples on doing the following:
- I get a Q-in-Q (lets say for example VLANID 400 on ether1)
- In this trunk, for each new customer they are assigned a new VLAN within that Q-in-Q tunnel (lets say 5 customers, 10,20,30,40,50)
- I want all these customers to 'auth' via PPPoE server
OK so, I could create VLAN interface on ether1 with VLANID400 and use service tag enabled. This creates the Q-in-Q.
I could also manually create each vlan interface under that for each customer, so 5 seperate interfaces.
Then I could also set up a PPPoE Server listening on each of those VLAN interfaces. Which then would create a dynamic interface under that for the pppoe when user successfully auths.
This would be OK if we were only talking 10-15 users but this could scale to many thousands, and I'd like to use VRRP and other scripting to have failover for this between 2 RouterOS based routers.
Doing it this way seems it would be an absolute NIGHTMARE for config maintenance/management, and even the possible performance overheads.
I'm looking for examples of ways to have a single PPP service listen on perhaps the Q-in-Q tunnel and attach itself to every inner VLAN and successfully terminate the customers? Or some other dynamic way of managing such a set-up?
All help appreciated, and I'll be sure to try wiki my outcomes (if not already around)
