IGMPPROXY stops working



  • Hi,

    I´m using pfsense in th e latest snapshot version on an alix-board. My IGMPPROXY stops working on every WAN IP change an also randomly while on heavy load (we have 2 receivers). the problem seems to be here araound since last year and I have hoped that ist would be solved with some of the updates. Now I have seen that this problem does not seem of bigger interrest so I ask if someone is into it. A similar problem is the using of the dhcp-client script in sbin. I always upgrade this file manually after every snapshot update because the problems with the slow channelswitching on IP-TV still are not solved.

    Regards

  • Same problem here with igmpproxy.

    What is the recommended way to monitor and restart a service in pfSense?

  • Hi,

    I tried the 2.0-RC1 (i386) Mon Apr 4 06:38:40 EDT 2011 built, it still keeps crashing. Is there a way to monitor and automatically restart a service?

    Regards

  • What do you mean by crashing!?
    Logs, core dump?!



  • Hi,

    during the last two days I did not see igmpproxy service stopping randomly any more. But the periodic reset of the PPPoE WAN interface still seems to be causing problems.

    The periodic reset is set to 04:15. Here is an an excerpt of the system log:

  • Hi,

    I just noticed that igmpproxy is not running on my box. There was no PPPoE reset, no log messages, no coredump.
    How can I help you to track this issue?

    Christof
