Can not get PIX-506E to work with Verizon FIOS connection & PPPoE

Hello all,

I have Verizon FIOS in my house.  I am playing around with my PIX-506E, trying to get it to work with the FIOS connection.  I know FIOS uses PPPoE.  I have the correct username & password - and have verified this by setting up a Linksys Router (and getting online, etc).

On the PIX, I think I've setup everything correctly - here are the main config lines (I've also attached the full config):

ip address outside pppoe setroute
global (outside) 10 interface
nat (inside) 10 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 0 0
access-list from-outside-coming-in permit ip any any
access-group from-outside-coming-in in interface outside
vpdn group pppoe_group request dialout pppoe
vpdn group pppoe_group localname USERNAME
vpdn group pppoe_group ppp authentication pap
vpdn username USERNAME password PASSWORD store-local

As you can see, I've even allowed everything IP to enter in, just to rule out that case.  I even set the MTU to 1492 from 1500 thinking it *might* have something to do with it.

To make things even more confusing, I find that it will sometimes pull an IP from Verizon (and it seems to be an IP from the block I usually get, 71.x.x.x) ... then , after a couple of min, the IP disappears.  When it does have an IP, I still cannot get to the outside world.

Anyone have any thoughts or experience setting this up?

Thanks all

Have you tried CHAP instead of PAP?

Hi lrmoore - it turned out to be a faulty cable!  The setup was just fine.  Extremely frustrating but it's working now. :)
