The CPE's (Customer Premise
Equipment) typically only operate as bridges when PPPoE is running.
There are a couple of vendors that recently came out with PPPoE in the
CPE, however, traditionally the model has been that PPPoE runs from
the client PC to the SMS (Subscriber Management System) and anything
in the middle is just a bridge. However, vendors who embed a PPPoE client
defeat one of the main reasons to use PPPoE. That is, to identify and
authenticate actual users.
