PPPoE issues since 2.4



  • Hello all.

    So to start due to my limited understanding of pfsense internal workings i have thus far been unable to determine if its pfsense losing the PPPoE connection or if i am losing the dsl sync on the modem.

    From the log file i am getting several drops and it seems to be trying to use IPv6 even though it is disabled so not really sure what is going on.

    Any enlightenment or help appreciated.

    Log of the PPP below. - previous drop.

  • Hi,
    This line at the top is the most recent line, right ?

    Feb 3 12:17:39   ppp      [wan] 217.42.170.107 -> 172.16.14.1
    

    If so, you showed a perfect example of a successful pppoe connection establishment - IPv6 included.
    The link is up - all seems fine to me.

    If something made drop the connection, it happens later on.



  • Thanks for the reply.

    I thought that showed a complete drop to a reconnect below is the current connection up until it starts getting IP info.

    Feb 3 12:20:46 is when i lost the connection again. Posted 2 line from previous log for comparison.

    I still don't know why there is any IPv6 because it is disable.

  • At the bottom, inversed  :

    Feb 3 12:17:39   ppp      [wan] IPCP: LayerUp
    Feb 3 12:17:39   ppp      [wan] 217.42.170.107 -> 172.16.14.1
    
    

    Connection ok for 3 minutes.
    And then :

    Feb 3 12:20:46   ppp      [wan_link0] PPPoE: connection closed
    

    I don't know why the connection was closed. I mean, if this is a programmed "clean" shutdown, or the result of a 'modem' that runs out of sync, bad line, etc.

    I used a pppoe connection for many years - and my ISP send a "connection shut down command" every 7 days sharp - pfSense rebuild the connection straight away, and I was good for another week.

    edit : possible to look closely at your "modem" to see if it has any "carrier" or "sync" led ? Has it a GUI - I could access my modem back then, I assigned it an IP like 10.0.0.1 on iy's LAN and put an IP like 10.0.0.138 on the WAN NIC of pfSense, some NAT rules (if I remember well) and I could checkout the GUI of my modem which had some indication about dB, line noise, sync speed, errors, etc.



  • Thanks for the reply.

    I have recently replaced the modem with a vigor 130 as i thought my old openreach modem was on its last legs but they both do the same thing.

    I mention the IPv6 because i have not had a problem up until it started appearing in the logs. It wasn't uncommon to have my connection up for over 30 days.

    In Interfaces/WAN

    IPv6 Configuration Type - None

    I don't use it on my LAN either

    I may just have to connect the BT home hub and run dual NAT for awhile then fight BT as they have been there usual helpful selves.



  • Edit

    I have yet to figure out how to view how long the modem has been synced so i could see if they drop at the same time.



  • Strange. Is private 172.16.14.1 the gateway of your ISP ? Where is that number located.
    Do you have the DrayTek Vigor130 doing the PPPoE and the again PPPoE from pfSense to Vigor ?

    But can't you put the Vigor130 in bridge mode and pass-through,
    then have PPPoE public 217.xy.abc.107 to pfSense-WAN with a public gateway ?



  • Thanks for the reply.

    No idea why that address is appearing as you say it's a private address range. May have something to do with openvpn but don't know enough about it.

    As for the vigor it is set to bridge mode. Pfsense does the pppoe stuff.

    Either there is a line issue or starting to think something got messed up in the upgrade to 2.4.

    Just found a box to drop all ipv6 in the advanced section will see if it helps but the ppp log still shows it getting an ipv6 address.



  • The Vigor130 has a Web GUI front-end this should show the uptime of the modem.

    Do you need IPv6, have you tried just using IPv4 until everything is "settled"?



  • Thanks for the reply

    Which section is that under in the vigor. I must of missed it as don't see it.

    As for IPv6 I don't currently need it which is why it is already set to none on the lan and wan. Yet the wan still gets an IPv6 address.



  • You need to setup an outband NAT in pfSense to access the modem - Click here

    Once you logon to the Vigor 130 modem, you will be at the dashboard, you will see the uptime in hours-minutes-seconds,another point is to make sure that you have the most up-to-date firmware.

    From the dashboard you can navigate on the left to Online Status -> Physical Connection






  • Additionally, from a telnet session to the Vigor 130, type the command:  show status

    The first line of the output will show the uptime




  • Uptime is how long the Vigor is running, it is not affected by the DSL sync.

    You can send syslog messages, with DSL information, to a device on your network, then you can filter them and see when DSL goes through a resync.



  • I would run a tcpdump (Diagnostics->Packet Capture) on the WAN interface of the pfSense while this fault is happening.

    Posting that to a pastebin where we can look at it would be helpful (you'll have to scrub any passwords etc, be careful here before just blindly pasting)



  • Thanks for the reply's.

    Been very busy the last week and most of next week.

    Will have to put up with it for awile untill I can try out your suggestions and get the log files.

    Will post again when have them.



  • Just posting an update.

    I had some time last weekend and decided to rebuild my router and do a fresh install with 2.4.

    Only change i made from my old setup was to enable IPv6 on the BT connection right from the start during the PPPoE setup.

    So far my connection has been up for 6 days.

    My guess would be something got messed up when i upgraded to 2.4 from 2.3. As in it was trying to use the IPv6 even though it was disabled.

    Thanks for all your help and suggestions.
