    Greetings! I am sticking a DSL modem (ethernet on LAN side) into one
    for the interfaces on this Cisco router. The modem is "bridged" and so
    I want to Cisco to take care of the NAT'ing and have that public
    address on the interface directly...

    This means having to do PPPOE with the Cisco so it can auth-up with
    Qwest, etc... how is that accomplished with this router (commands)? I
    am seeing pppoe sub-commands specific to the interface, but where do I
    enter username / password credentials to be used by the pppoe?

    Any help / examples are GREATLY appreciated?

  2. I was just going to give you the rude google for it as there's
    zillions of examples, but I don't like the VPDN group setup anyway
    that all comes up.

    bba-group pppoe group1
    interface GigabitEthernet0/0
    description PPPoE interface
    no ip address
    pppoe enable group group1
    pppoe-client dial-pool-number 1
    interface Dialer0
    description PPPoE Dialer
    ip mtu 1492
    ip address negotiated
    encapsulation ppp
    dialer pool 1
    dialer-group 1
    ppp authentication chap pap callin
    ppp pap sent-username jimbob password woohoo
    ip route Dialer0

    On a 870 router, I had problems with "dialer-group" and the stuff worked
    when I took that line out.

    dialer pool 1 is what ties the "dialer" interface with fast ethernet
    interfaces in the same group.

    I am no expert on this, just relating my recent experience.
