The Vigor2952 (DrayOS), Vigor3220 (DrayOS), Vigor2960 (Linux), Vigor300B (Linux), and Vigor3900 (Linux) can be set up to be PPPoE servers for LAN clients. This can securely connect LAN clients to the network using PPP authentication, providing an extra level of network security. The network administrator can also apply connection time limits and data quotas to the LAN clients.
To enable the PPPoE function and add user profiles for the LAN clients to login, follow these steps:
1. Go to LAN >> PPPoE Server. Enable PPPoE Server and enter the Primary DNS and the Secondary DNS to be assigned to PPPoE clients. Click OK to save.
2. Go to User Management >> User Profile. Click an available profile to create a user account.
3. Edit the profile as follows:
a. Enable the account.
b. Enter a Username and Password, confirm the password.
c. (Optional) Change the Idle Timeout and associate it with a Schedule for this profile.
d. (Optional) Apply limitations to this profile.
e. (Optional) Enable MAC Address Binding and fill in the client’s MAC address (this restricts this profile to that specific device).
f. Specify the DHCP Subnet or give it a Static IP Address. The router will then assign the exact IP address to the user login with this profile.
g. Click OK to save the profile
