PPPoE fails within a VLAN



  • I have multiple broadband providers connected to multiple VLANs on my managed switch. I have a trunk mode port connected to the pfSense box that is carrying multiple VLANs.

    All the VLANs carrying normal IP traffic are working fine but when I select a VLAN as a PPPoE interface I fail to get the interface to come up. When I change to dialing the PPPoE over a native untagged port I have no problems.

    I can only think that there is some problem with the PPPoE client dialing on VLAN interfaces.



  • Can you post the log of your system regarding this.

  • Should be ok on next snapshot or you can try changing manually as in
