If I recall correctly the rp-pppoe server is not recommended by the
developers for production use. Here we use some Debian Etch boxes
running FreeRADIUS to handle the backend and a Redback router for PPPoE.
However depending on your load you might be able to pick up an older
Cisco on eBay (like a 7200, 7500 or something) or look at Mikrotik as
another reader mentioned.
