Description of problem:
Steps to reprodcue
After activating the connection the default route still is assigned to the eth0
gateway and not to the ppp0 interface gateway. Check with "ip route" this
behavior was not seen in RH 7.2 but was seen in Skipjack Beta 1 and 2.
Subsequent upgrades through rawhide RPMs never saw this corrected.
Currently, I have to ip route delete default; ip route add default via x.x.x.x
dev ppp0 to get any outside network connections.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a xDSL connection using the redhat-config-network-druid program.
2. Let this use eth0 to get to the DSL modem.
3. Check the option to have this assigned as the default route.
4. Activate the ppp0 interface either by using the druid or by using if up ppp0
5. Check with "ip route" the default route is never set to the ppp0 interface
Actual Results: Default route not assiged
Expected Results: Default route should be assigned to the gateway of the ppp0
This worked prior to SkipJack Beta 1 and Beta 2. I never checked pass those
beta stages and hoped it would have been fixed. This never occurred with RH
7.2. The ppp0 interface is using PPPoE via eth0 through a DSL Modem (Alcatel
This is a *severe* usability bug for DSL users and a connectivity regression
over RedHat 7.2
I see similar behaviour, setting the gateway to my server. Via neat fine. Reboot
- gateway gone. I either manually need to do a add default gw x.x.x.x and it's
there or start neat and set gw again - doing so strangely enough in the first
place there is no gw at all then by setting it the previously set gw's are
there..... by adding more and more gw, the list then is gettting longer.
I have fount the same problem too in my RH7.3 whit adsl connection.
Is true, the mistake is in the route set makes from pppoe and after the update
of the rp-pppoe package i have correct it.
there isn't an rpm but i have found only the sources with a simply gui for the
Could you please attach your adsl config file (ifcfg-ppp0)?
Which version of rp-pppoe and redhat-config-network did you install?
It works fine for me with T-DSL. Harald, do you have this problem with your T-DSL?
seems to be a problem of rp-pppoe
if you try to setup DSL connection, make sure that "Make this connection the
default route" is enable. It should work fine.
