At the server

pppd plugin pppoatm.so 9.45 passive

Run this on the server before starting the client. Adjust IP addresses
as required.

What is pppoa-relay? Are you confusing PPPoE and PPPoA?

What role does the Alcatel iSAM box play in your network? Is it between
the Linux PPPoA client and Linux PPPoA server? If so, how does it map
ingress/egress ATM VCs? Is it configured to pass the ATM traffic correctly?
