Off the top of my head...
I would use L2TP.  PPP cannot traverse "routed" links w/o a tunneling mechanism.  I think bridging the interface together should work, but is not scalable.

Subject: [nsp] PPPoE over serial link.

Hello all

I would like to know if it is possible to transport PPPoE connections 
over a serial link. My actual configuration is:

FreeBSD                  <------------------>  CPE (cisco 2600) 
<------------------> NAS (3600)
(PPPoE client)                   Ethernet                             
                     PPP serial link                PPPoE server

My question is how could I encapsulate PPPoE client's request to PPPoE 
server over PPP serial link? is it possible?

Thank you very much.
