PPPoE/PPTP modem interface

Modem interfaces are used in remote connections when your modem is connected directly to your firewall. There are two types of modem interfaces:

  • PPPoE modem: when your modem is connected directly to an Ethernet port on the firewall,

  • PPTP modem: when your modem is connected directly to a serial port on the firewall.

NOTES
  • The firewall automatically negotiates the opening of a line and reinitializes the connection in the event of an interruption. When the connection cannot be set up (e.g., issues with the line), the firewall will raise an alarm.
  • If your modem needs to be connected to the firewall’s USB port, refer to USB/Ethernet interface (for USB sticks /modems).
