When a PPP connection is lost, no redial is attempted. There seems to be
no way to configure this from the rp3 GUI.
I'm using rp3-1.0.1-1
You are right. I hesitate to add every possible option to rp3-config,
but perhaps redial is one of those options that should be added.
In the meantime, you can work around this with
echo 'PERSIST=yes' >> /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ppp0
You can also use linuxconf to make this change, although it will
leave an unused chat-ppp0 file around when it does so.
When linuxconf supports rp3-style wvdial configuration, it will
give the option to set PERSIST=yes, just as it does now. Right now,
linuxconf is the CHAT-based configuration fall-back tool for when
rp3 doesn't work.
Persistant redial has been added as an option for the next release of rp3.
The latest test release at
has added a persistance option. Feel free to try it out.
The latest test release is now
