Weird pppoe problem when migrated from ADSL to FTTH
till now i was on ADSL so basically pfsense on my alix was connected to the ADSL modem in pppoe mode and that worked perfectly fine but just now the telephone company migrated my account to FTTH and now i have a fibre line coming to my home which connects to the the device shown in the link below
and from this to pfsense WAN port, config to be used is same pppoe connection but what happens is if i reboot my alix then only WAN pppoe gets connected and if from the web gui i disconnect and then press connect again then it wont and in system log shows few mpd errors starting with caught fatal signal etc.
any help would be greatly appreciated to fix manual disconnect and connect issue.
Going to need the actual logs from mpd.
plz can u specify how to get the log as im a newbie in BSD?
/var/etc/mpd_wan.conf looks as below
new -i pppoe0 pppoeclient pppoeclient
set iface route default
set iface disable on-demand
set iface idle 0
set iface enable tcpmssfix
set iface up-script /usr/local/sbin/ppp-linkup
set iface down-script /usr/local/sbin/ppp-linkdown
set bundle disable multilink
set auth authname "username"
set auth password "password"
set link keep-alive 10 60
set link max-redial 0
set link no acfcomp protocomp
set link disable pap chap
set link accept chap
set link mtu 1500
set ipcp yes vjcomp
set ipcp ranges 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0
plz let me know the commands to get the mpd log
basically im getting the same stuff in system log for mpd
mpd: Multi-link PPP daemon for FreeBSD
mpd: process 37549 terminated
mpd: caught fatal signal term
and it happens only when alix is running in connected state and then if connection drops for some reason or i manually press disconnect and then reconnect then it wont connect and keep displaying the above in system log but if alix is rebooted then at that time when it tries to connect to WAN, its successful then, so currently if connection drops then i need to keep restarting the alix in order to make it connect.
in other ways once connected it runs fine without any packet loss as my alix is connected to GPON using the Zhone technology ONT
one more thing, being connected to internet y does the gateway section show gateway as offline, is it because its not pingable and showing offline doe it affect anything if im on a single WAN link.
