vpnc dying very often in fed-8
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:22 EST
Description of problem:
vpnc is dying a lot after upgrading to Fed-8 (from Fed-7). It seems esp. to be
a problem as the data rate gets higher (over the weekend wasn't too bad ... but
it's died at least 4 times today, sometimes within 10mins of me starting it).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I'm only running it on x86_64 ... that might be relevant, it might not ... I've
chosen the arch to be on the safe side.
This is in my /var/log/messages:
Nov 11 08:33:35 code vpnc: select: Interrupted system call
Nov 11 08:33:35 code vpnc: terminated by signal: 15
Can you please try this?
n/m about those syslog() message that's just my script that helps vpnc stay
alive for multi-days. This is the one from just before the bad restart:
Nov 12 15:41:41 code vpnc: connection terminated by dead peer detection
...I assume this means the server end is having problems? If so just close Not A
Ok, added that line and I've restart vpnc ... I'll let you know.
Ok, at a guess this is the same problem. As I've just seen it hang waiting for
data (in evolution) for a couple of minutes, before the above change I'd never
seen that in Fed-8.
I'll change the DPD default to be at least something higher than current value
and if it doesn't help I'll turn it off by default.
