I want to know if it is possible to use an Ubuntu server as BRAS (Broadband Remote Access Server), pppoe-server, in network - if so how many concurrent users could it support?

assuming BRAS = Broadband Remote Access Server. Please update question it you are talking about something else (like the womens garments :) ) – Rinzwind Feb 3 '12 at 8:29

Yes, it is possible to use Ubuntu as a Broadband Remote Access Server. You are limited only by system resources (ie, amount of memory, 32- vs 64-bit). There are no artificial limits imposed by licensing.

Thanks for your response, but the important point is how can we use is it? could you please refer me to a how-to document? – Amir Feb 4 '12 at 6:59
@Amir Ah, that is an entirely different, and good, question. Please edit your question to ask what you intended. Alas, I don't have the answer for that, but someone else might. – djeikyb Feb 4 '12 at 13:51
