CONFIG_L2TP_ETH: L2TP ethernet pseudowire support for L2TPv3

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_L2TP_ETH:

Help text

Support for carrying raw ethernet frames over L2TPv3.

From RFC 4719

The Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol, Version 3 (L2TPv3) can be used as a control protocol and for data encapsulation to set up Pseudowires for transporting layer 2 Packet Data Units across an IP network [RFC3931].

This driver provides an ethernet virtual interface for each L2TP ethernet pseudowire instance. Standard Linux tools may be used to assign an IP address to the local virtual interface, or add the interface to a bridge.

If you are using L2TPv3, you will almost certainly want to enable this option.

To compile this driver as a module, choose M here. The module will be called l2tp_eth.
