Integrated DSL Functionality CPE Router – PPPoE on Ethernet Interface

Configuration by: Dr.Orbit Waqas (CCIE R&S / Securuty, CISSP, ITIL V.3, MCSE, Cloud Certified)

PPPoE on Ethernet interfaces—PPPoE functionality is configured on a CPE router with two Ethernet interfaces. One Ethernet interface is subscriber-facing, the other provider facing.

You may consider the following steps to configure PPPoE (DSL Configuration):

1. Internal Ethernet interface configuration (It can be a VLAN or Ethernet Interface)
2. External Ethernet interface configuration (DSL INTERFACE)
3. Dialer interface configuration
4. Configuring Access List
5. NAT/PAT configuration
6. Configuring IP domain Lookup
7. DHCP server services configuration
8. Static default route configuration

Note: I have noticed through my practice and study configurations, there is no specific help exists for the configuration of IP domain lookup command and ISP DNS options in DHCP server configuration. Without these DSL connection will not work. Also pay attention if DSL connection did not work, to check the state of all interfaces by using show ip interface brief and make sure to issue no shutdown command on all of them.

1. Internal Ethernet interface configuration

interface FastEthernet 0/1
description internal interface
ip address
ip nat inside
no shut

OR (incase you are using Cisco 877 router)

interface Vlan1
description internal interface
ip address
ip nat inside
no shut

2. External Ethernet interface configuration

Interface FastEthernet 0/0
Description DSL interface
no ip address
pppoe enable
pppoe-client dial-pool-number 1
no shut

3. Dialer interface configuration

interface Dialer1
description ### ADSL WAN LOGICAL ##
ip address negotiated
ip mtu 1492
ip virtual-reassembly in
ip nat outside
ip tcp adjust-mss 1452
encapsulation ppp
dialer pool 1
dialer-group 1
ppp authentication chap pap callin
ppp pap sent-username USERNAME password P@ssw0rd (Password provided by ISP)
ppp chap hostname HOSTNAME (Username provided by ISP)
ppp chap password P@ssw0rd
ppp ipcp dns request
ppp ipcp address accept
no cdp enable
no shut

4. Configuring Access List

ip access-list extended DSL_ACCESSLIST
100 permit ip any

5. Configuring NAT/PAT

ip nat inside source list DSL_ACCESSLIST interface dialer 1 overload

6. Configuring IP domain Lookup

ip domain lookup
ip name-server Primary DNS IP address (obtained from your ISP)
ip name-server Secondary DNS IP address (obtained from your ISP)

7. DHCP server services configuration

ip dhcp pool DSL_DHCP
network /29
dns-server Primary DNS IP address Secondary DNS IP address (obtained from your ISP)
default-router (internal VLAN or Ethernet interface Ip address)
import all

8. Static default route configuration

Configure a static default route. It should point to the dialer interface rather than an IP address:

ip route dialer 1

Microsoft Exchange Server 2013

Installation of Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 on Server 2012

Another Tip from Waqas (Dr.Orbit)

This is a short precise method to have smooth and standard installation.

Follow the Steps:

No.1  Install fresh Server 2012.

No.2  Run this command

             Install-WindowsFeature RSAT-ADDS

No.3  Once completed then issue the below command

Install-WindowsFeature AS-HTTP-Activation, Desktop-Experience, NET-Framework-45-Features, RPC-over-HTTP-proxy, RSAT-Clustering, RSAT-Clustering-CmdInterface, Web-Mgmt-Console, WAS-Process-Model, Web-Asp-Net45, Web-Basic-Auth, Web-Client-Auth, Web-Digest-Auth, Web-Dir-Browsing, Web-Dyn-Compression, Web-Http-Errors, Web-Http-Logging, Web-Http-Redirect, Web-Http-Tracing, Web-ISAPI-Ext, Web-ISAPI-Filter, Web-Lgcy-Mgmt-Console, Web-Metabase, Web-Mgmt-Console, Web-Mgmt-Service, Web-Net-Ext45, Web-Request-Monitor, Web-Server, Web-Stat-Compression, Web-Static-Content, Web-Windows-Auth, Web-WMI, Windows-Identity-Foundation

No.4  Reboot

No.5  Go to Server Manager and Install Active Directory Role

No.6  Reboot

No.7  Install Active Directory by promoting server to domain controller

No.8  Install Pre-Requisites:

Make sure the below 3 prerequisites are installed

No.9  Finally Install Exchange Server 2013 Deploy the Setup “Exchange-x64.exe”

No.10   Accessing the EAC

Because the EAC is now a web-based management console, you’ll need to use the ECP virtual directory URL to access the console from your web browser. In most cases the EAC’s URL will look similar to the following:

VMware vSphere esxi Host / Hypervisor with vCenter Server

vSphere Client

VMs and Templetes

Network Boulevard
