Handling Process
1. Logged on USG to checked PPPoE configuration, and found no wrong.

2. Contacted user, and knew that client succeed to dial by using the dial software from carrier. Without the software, it failed to build a PPPoE in Windows and dial.

3. Found out the reason was the restriction from user’s carrier (China Unicom in Henan province). The carrier encrypted username, so user failed to dial by using an original username.

4. Found a username encryption software for Henan Unicom. And use the encrypted username to dial. The problem is solved.

Suggestions
Some carrier may do some restriction about PPPoE. It isn’t the devices’ problem. If configuration is right, please contact the carrier.
