PPPoE server for Windows 7 clients, possible ?

Tue Jul 26, 2011 1:08 am

I'm trying to set up RB800 RouterOS 4.17 as PPPoE server for Windows 7 clients.

However Windows 7 PPPoE client is reporting "Error 720".

I have found the following post on the Mikrotik forums:
"Unfortunatelly many clients today send <callback 0x06> as part of LCP ConfReq even when no callback is configured (Windows 2008, Windows 7), making it impossible to connect to Mikrotik ppp server."

http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=50799

Is anyone actually running RouterOS 4.17 as PPPoE server for Windows 7 clients?
If so please provide hints!

Thanks a lot,
Everton

I'm using default configuration for ppp server RB800 v5.5 (but it must work with v4.x/v3.x/etc.),

I do not have any problems with PPPoE connection, see attached picture.
I thing PPPoE server configuration might be the reason for your problem.

This is from my testbed. Do you see where the problem lies?

Everton,

Is there local-address configured in /ppp secret or /ppp profile?
Local address is point to point tunnel IP address assigned to route.
/ppp sercret
 1   name="123" service=pppoe caller-id="" password="123" profile=default 
     local-address=5.6.7.8 remote-address=6.7.8.9 routes="" limit-bytes-in=0

Yes, as below. Does it break the Win7 PPPoE client? It seems to work for Linux PPPoE client though.

1) I want to see /log print after Windows7 PPPoE client unsuccessful authorization attempt.

2) Make sure Windows computer has correct VLAN settings.
0 R vlan10 1500 enabled 10 ether2
Have you tried on default Ethernet interface?

Both Ubuntu Linux and Windows 7 are unaware of the VLAN settings.
It's a single notebook connected to a switch port which adds the VLAN tag.
No, I did not try to connect without VLAN tag yet.
If I boot the notebook with Linux, the PPPoE client connects sucessfully, as below:

Then when I reboot the notebook with Windows 7, and get the following logs on Mikrotik:

Do you think an upgrade to 5.5 would fix this issue?
Is it allowed to load 5.5 on this RB800, given the license below?

Hi,

I'm not sure the upgrade will help, but upgrading your license to 5.5 should pose no problem since you have -

upgradable-to: v7.x

Make sure you also upgrade the firmware after you upgrade the license (reboot required).
I also make a backup and an export to file before I attempt any of the above so as to be able to downgrade and get back my original config if not all goes well :).

Rgds,
Mark.

Re: PPPoE server for Windows 7 clients, possible ?

Tue Jul 26, 2011 9:05 pm

For the records, I'm getting the same result with RB800 upgraded to 5.5.
Below you can see the disconnect from Windows 7.

Re: PPPoE server for Windows 7 clients, possible ?

Wed Jul 27, 2011 10:06 am

1) Check encryption settings on both ends /ppp profile and Windows7 computer.
2) Do you have any other Windows7 computer in your local network? Perhaps Windows7 computer settings are overcustomized.

I tried to disable the encryption settings on both ends, no success with Win7. I also tried PPPoE on the physical interface (without VLAN), no success with Win7 either.

So far, both Linux and WinXP work properly. Win7 disconnects after the "Registering computer on the network" phase.

For the records, I have finally spotted the problem.
There was an IPSec VPN Stack installed on Windows7 which prevented the PPPoE client from connecting successfully.
The Windows7 computer was overcustomized after all.
