Missing PPPoE interfaces in l2tp configuration
Open, NormalPublicBUG


Hi, I have a VyOS system which uses an ethernet port as a PPPoE port (pppoe0) to connect to internet. I obtain a dynamic IP from the ISP.
I wish use pppoe0 with l2tp server so i have tried the following command

set vpn l2tp remote-access dhcp-interface pppoe0

but pppoe0 does not appear in the list of available interfaces. The system allows to insert pppoe0 in the last command but when I "commit it" i receive the following error

L2TP VPN configuration error: The specified interface is not configured for DHCP.

please, can you permit to use pppoe interface with dynamic address with l2tp server?
