On CentOS6, I used to setip it up with rp-pppoe wizzard and it works:

I would like to learn how to do it with NM and CentOS 7.

How to invoke nmcli in order to have it connected at boot?


With nmcli you can edit a connection.

See `man nmcli-examples` and `man nmcli`.

See `man nm-settings` for a description of the properties.

or also
  $ nmcli connection edit NAME
  nmcli> help
  nmcli> describe connection.autoconnect

First you need a pppoe connection... If you don't have it already,
add one with

  $ nmcli connection add type pppoe con-name NAME ...

  and then edit it...

  $ nmcli connection edit NAME
  $ nmcli connection modify NAME ...

Inspect the connection with

  $ nmcli connection show NAME

Whether it connects at boot is the "connection.autoconnect" property.

  $ nmcli connection modify NAME connection.autoconnect yes
