PPPoE disconnects *every* hour?



  • Hi,
    each hour after I restart pfsense, the PPPoE disconnects! I see this in the logs:-

    Mar  5 08:05:02 pfsense mpd: [pppoe] LCP: rec'd Terminate Request #38 link 0 (Opened)
    Mar  5 08:05:02 pfsense mpd: [pppoe] LCP: state change Opened –> Stopping
    Mar  5 08:05:02 pfsense mpd: [pppoe] LCP: phase shift NETWORK –> TERMINATE
    Mar  5 08:05:02 pfsense mpd: [pppoe] setting interface ng0 MTU to 1500 bytes
    Mar  5 08:05:02 pfsense mpd: [pppoe] up: 0 links, total bandwidth 9600 bps
    Mar  5 08:05:02 pfsense mpd: [pppoe] IPCP: Down event
    Mar  5 08:05:02 pfsense mpd: [pppoe] IPCP: state change Opened –> Starting
    Mar  5 08:05:02 pfsense mpd: [pppoe] IPCP: LayerDown
    Mar  5 08:05:02 pfsense mpd: [pppoe] IFACE: Down event
    Mar  5 08:05:02 pfsense mpd: [pppoe] exec: /sbin/route delete 0.0.0.0 94.30.127.

    etc

    Then it re-connects.

    I am running pfsense 1.2.3 on a Soekris box with a Draytek Vigor 100 ADSL2+ pass-trough modem.

    This has worked fine in the past but I can't be sure when the problem started. I did used to run m0n0wall for several years before
    I switched to pfsense a few weeks ago.
    Cant be sure if it is my ISP, or my setup here?

    Thanks

    D

    Do you have pfSense set for dial-on-demand?

    Also, this bit:

    rec'd Terminate Request #38
    

    Seems to imply the connection is being torn down deliberately for some reason, possibly from the ISP end.
