  • Post the "PPP" log.


  • Rebel Alliance Developer Netgate

    Also make sure you are on the most current snapshots. Some snapshots from earlier this week had PPPoE issues.



  • I have exactly the same problem with the following build:
    pfSense-2.0-BETA5-4g-20101231-1506-nanobsd-upgrade.img.gz

    The output in PPP is:
    Jan 1 23:53:59 ppp: process 60371 started, version 5.5 (root@FreeBSD_8.0_pfSense_2.0-snaps.pfsense.org 16:48 28-Dec-2010)

    Jan 1 23:54:00 ppp: [wan_link0] Link: reconnection attempt 2 in 4 seconds

    Then the systems enters an endless loop of the 5 last lines.

    Any idea?



  • Make sure you have selected the right interface on "Interfaces: PPPs: Edit" in my case it was auto-selected "wan", but it seems you have to select the hardware name.

    Also make sure to do ifconfig pppoe0 down and then go to web interface and press conect button on status > interfaces



  • Use the search of the forum first…

  • The problem is now solved.
    I suppose there is a problem in some scripts.

    What I did:

    • disable the WAN interface
    • enable it as static ip
    • disable it
    • enable it
    • change it to ppoe
    • reboot

    and now it's working…



  • From my perspective, the post you mentioned is also on PPoE problem but does not have the same root cause…
    (different messages in the log)

    Anyway, for investigation purpose I'll add here the requested information:

    • Architecture: i386
    • NanoBSD / PC Engine Alix Board (pfSense-2.0-BETA5-4g-20101231-1506-nanobsd-upgrade.img.gz)
    • Packages installed : pfflowd (broken since beta)
    • Interface: WAN
    • PPPoE settings on the interface page:
    • MTU: 1492
    • Enable Dial-On-Demand mode
    • IDLE timeout: 1200 seconds
    • logs (see above)

    Solved by:

    • moving WAN from interface vr0 to vr2
    • moving it back to vr0

    ...
    Should you need any addition information/test don't hesitate to let me know.



  • You should probably post this things where jimp requested it…
    It would be better for all others that are not watching this topic here...
