Hello Chamara,

VPDN is typically used when your client device connects to an access server. What is your setup ? Are you simply trying to connect to an ISP using PPPoE ? And what is your client device/platform (e.g. Cisco 887) ?

hi Georg

yes we are trying to connect to ISP using PPPoE , the device is a cisco ASA firewall

Hello Chamara,

with the ASA, use the VPDN setup. Do you need help with the configuration?

hi Georg

thanks , appreciate if you can send the config as well , also what the difference between VPDN and dialer interfaces , when should we use each? is it device specific ?

Chamara,

dialer interfaces are for routers, I don't even think you can configure those on a ASA. Either way, the link below has sample configs for the ASA as a PPPoE client (since I don't know which OS version you are running:
