Questions About Dial On Demand



  • I guess I don't understand the purpose of dial on demand. It sounds like a setting from the dial up modem days. I just setup pfsense to work with my always on CenturyLink Gigabit FTTH connection. It uses PPPoE with a VLAN. I found a tutorial https://kdemaria.wordpress.com/2015/04/22/how-to-configure-pfsense-2-2-2-for-centurylink-gigabit-seattle-edition/ that specifically says I should enable dial on demand with a zero timeout. What would be the purpose of this, or is this an incorrect suggestion? Would it make any difference if I had a conventional copper wired DSL or cable modem internet connection? I've tried both enabling and disabling this setting and my internet connection doesn't seem to change. I'm confused. Thanks!
