Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 82630
PPOE_TIMEOUT in /sbin/adsl-setup is seriously wrong
Last modified: 2015-01-07 19:03:04 EST
Description of problem:
According to rp-pppoe documentation, PPPOE_TIMEOUT better be at least 4 times
the LCP_INTERVAL. So, it should be 80, not 20. With 3 LCP_FAILURE counts and
20 seconds LCP_INTERVAL, the PPPOE_TIMEOUT of 20 gices PPPoE no chance to stay
up, it detects a timeout before it even has had a chance to send its LCP pings.
So, it dicsonnects about once a minute and then reconnects again. New IP address
som time, and a complete waste of CPU cycles.
Took me a while to figure this out, reading docs and experimenting with DSL.
Learned a lot, but I don't think that was the intention. The value 80 solves
the problem! DSL has now been up for 12 hours without a single disconnect.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2. edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ppp0 with USER
drops connection once a minute and the reconnects
should stay up without dropping connection so frequently
By the way, adls-stop is having a " " (blank) between the "#" and "!/bin/bash"
on the first line, making it impossible to run it as a script.
oh, this's a typo bug. It's fixed now in 3.5-4, which is available in rawhide.
Thanks for your report
