Note
To maximize extensibility while still permitting interoperability, a
uniform method for encoding message types and bodies is used
throughout L2TP.  This encoding will be termed AVP (Attribute-Value
Pair).

General Error Codes

Available Formats

CSV
Value Message Description Reference
0 No general error
1 No control connection exists yet for this LAC-LNS pair
2 Length is wrong
3 One of the field values was out of range or reserved field was non-zero
4 Insufficient resources to handle this operation now
5 The Session ID is invalid in this context
6 A generic vendor-specific error occurred in the LAC
7 Try another. If LAC is aware of other possible LNS destinations, it should try one of them. This can be used to guide an LAC based on LNS policy, for instance, the existence of multilink PPP bundles.
8 Session or tunnel was shutdown due to receipt of an unknown AVP with the M-bit set (see section 4.2). The Error Message SHOULD contain the attribute of the offending AVP in (human readable) text form.
9 Try another directed. If an LAC or LNS is aware of other possible destinations, it should inform the initiator of the control connection or session. The Error Message MUST contain a comma-separated list of addresses from which the initiator may choose. If the L2TP data channel runs over IPv4, then this would be a comma-separated list of IP addresses in the canonical dotted-decimal format (e.g., "192.0.2.1, 192.0.2.2, 192.0.2.3") in the UTF-8 charset [RFC3629] using the Default Language [RFC2277]. If there are no servers for the LAC or LNS to suggest, then Error Code 7 should be used. For IPv4, the delimiter between addresses MUST be precisely a single comma and a single space. For IPv6, each literal address MUST be enclosed in "[" and "]" characters, following the encoding described in [RFC2732].
10 Next hop unreachable. This identifies an error condition explicitly in the multi-TSA environment. [draft-ietf-l2tpext-tunnel-switching-06]
11 Next hop busy. This identifies an error condition explicitly in the multi-TSA environment. [draft-ietf-l2tpext-tunnel-switching-06]
12 TSA busy. This identifies an error condition explicitly in the multi-TSA environment. [draft-ietf-l2tpext-tunnel-switching-06]
