Spirent TestCenter: What is a PPPoE PADT packet, and how can I send them in Spirent TestCenter?

  • Spirent TestCenter.
  • PPPoE.
The PPPoE Active Discovery Terminate (PADT) packet may be sent anytime after a PPPoE session is established to indicate that a PPPoE session has been terminated.  It may be sent by either the Host or the Access Concentrator.
  1. The DESTINATION_ADDR field is a unicast Ethernet address.
  2. The CODE field is set to 0xa7.
  3. SESSION_ID MUST be set to indicate which session is to be terminated.  No TAGs are required.

To send PADT packets on STC:
  • Highlight one of the PPPoE devices.
  • Go to the PPPoX tab.
  • Hit the Disconnect PPPoX Device button on the top menu.
