We present an erbium-doped mode-locked fiber laser comprising two all-optical control mechanisms acting on the carrier envelope offset (CEO)-frequency as well as the repetition frequency. The laser's repetition frequency is stabilized via optically pumping a distinct ytterbium-doped fiber module. By proving that additionally controlling the pump power of the erbium-doped gain fiber acts sufficiently complementary on the laser's CEO-frequency compared with repetition frequency stabilization, we demonstrate the feasibility of this concept for an all-optically controlled frequency comb in an all-fiber setup.
