PPP Configuration on Cisco


PPP Configuration on Cisco Routers

In this lesson, we will talk about PPP Configuration (Point-to-Point Protocol Configuration) on Cisco Routers. We will learn configuration commands for this general standard wan connection.

In our PPP Configuration example, we will use the below basic topology:


Now, do not waste time and let’s start to configure PPP for this topology.

Enabling PPP

To configure Point-to-Point Protocol, firstly we will enable PPP and after that, we will configure the interface ip addresses.

Router1# configure terminal
Router1(config) # interface Serial 0/0/0
Router1(config-if) # encapsulation ppp
Router1(config-if) # ip address
Router1(config-if) # exit

Now, let’s configure Router 2 for PPP like above. Here, only the ip address of the interface will be changed. All the other configurations steps will be same.

Router2# configure terminal
Router2(config) # interface Serial 0/0/0
Router2(config-if) # encapsulation ppp
Router2(config-if) # ip address
Router2(config-if) # exit
