This is on a 871w router. Version 12.4(15)T9, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc5), nd an external ADSL router to a PPPoE based ISP.
While PPPoE was having problems getting connected to the ISP:
I tried the following: router2#show debug PPPoE: PPPoE protocol events debugging is on PPPoE elog debugging is on PPP: PPP authentication debugging is on PPP protocol negotiation debugging is on
However, the information being produced lacked some information such as the name of the BAS/BRAS at the other end of the DSL line. It does show its ethernet address though.
Also, once the session has been established:
router2#show pppoe session all Total PPPoE sessions 1
session id: 7425 local MAC address: 0026.0b6b.7e4d, remote MAC address: 0090.1aa0.a25b virtual access interface: Vi1, outgoing interface: Fa438060819 packets sent, 40504811 received 23822114668 bytes sent, 36994062836 received
Again, it doesn't give me the name of the BAS/BRAS to which I am pasing through, only its ethernet address. (0090 is a juniper box which Bell Canada uses as BAS/BRAS).
When a link is having difficulty being established, what are the recommended commands to log the effort with more detail ?
I tried the debug pppoe packets, but it only shows the first few bytes of packets, so I guess the name of the BAS/BRAS gets snipped out instead of being printed.
Is there some command to get those debug commands to format the full packets ?
Or must I use wireshark to get to the information my el-cheapo old Netgear RT314 was able to give me ?
