Description of problem:
my ippp0 network device is configured to hangup after an idle time of 600
In the network devices control /usr/bin/neat-control the status of ippp0
changes in fact from "activated" to "deactivated" after this time.
But in spite of this the ppp isdn connection is really still active! So I am
connected to my ISP longer than wanted without recognizing that.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Redhat Linux 8.0, AVM Fritzcard! PCI ISDN Adapter
Steps to Reproduce:
0. under network configuration, configure a timeout for ippp0 of 600 seconds
1. run /usr/bin/neat-control
2. activate the ippp0 network device (i. e. dial the ISP via ISDN)
3. after the connection has been established, wait for the time out
4. with /usr/bin/neat-control still open, watch the status of ippp0 changing
from activated to deactivated
5. send data over ippp0 to the internet or look at the network configuration or
close and restart /usr/bin/neat-control and you will find that ippp0 is still
after the timeout ippp0 is still activated, the isdn connection is not closed
hang up isdn connection after timeout for ippp0
do you have dial-on-demand activated? If so, the line will come up again, if you
check for the status...
no, I have not enabled dial on demand
I assume i's fixed in current release. Please reassign it to FC5 if it still
