PPPoE (PPP over Ethernet)

PPPoE is a network protocol for encapsulating Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) frames inside Ethernet frames. This technology is often used by DSL providers for which users can virtually "dial" from one device to another over an Ethernet network, set up a point to point connection between the two, and securely transport data packets over the network connection.
