Description cradford 2000-10-06 07:58:02 EDT
Script /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-ppp only partially processes 
"DISCONNECTTIMEOUT" and "RETRYTIMEOUT" parameters. The options never get 
passed to the ppp daemon. That is, they are never added to the '$opts' 
variable as "idle ${DISCONNECTTIMEOUT}" and "holdoff ${RETRYTIMEOUT}" if 
they are not null (which they never are, as they are defaulted at the 
start of the script).
Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2004-08-13 05:24:14 EDT
Please verify this with a newer version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux or Fedora
Core and reopen it against the new version if it still occurs.

Closing as "not a bug" for now.
Comment 2 cradford 2004-08-13 07:33:48 EDT
The ifup-ppp script distributed in rpm package "initscripts-6.43-1" 
(Red Hat 7.2), does not have this flaw. This bug can be considered 
truely stood upon (not just closed, but fixed :>)
