How To Block PPPOE Requests


Hi I have a pppoe-server and I want to block request from certain mac addresses, but since pppoe is a IP-Less protocol I can not use IP tables any ideas ?

MAC addresses only exist on the local LAN segment. You want to use authentication to limit connections. Read the documentation for the pppoe server you are using to set up authenticated connections.

Well, why not restricting bad macs on the network requesting PAD1's. Just use ebtables or carve /etc/ethers as desired.
