For that you'd be better of writing the PPPoE module natively in C (or any other native language) and linking it with your Java application via JNI.

It can't be in Java, since Java doesn't provide access to protocol layers this deep. The lowest layer Java can access is TCP/UDP, while PPP is way below that: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Point-to-Point_Protocol_over_Ethernet
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
