PPPOE Login Lock



  • for german readers: http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,49444.0.html

    hello,

    for days i am now trying to setup a DSL pppoe connection with pfsense. but i allways get an error about a "login lock".

    i called my local provider and asked him to remove the lock, which occures after 9 wrong login attempts with the wrong password.

    who knows how to avoid this? why can this happen? does pfsense try to connect bevore i setup the pppoe username + login?

    is there a difference between the two setup options: interface(em1)->wan->pppoe OR interface->ppp->pppoe->em1/wan ?

    i tried "Configure a NULL Service name"

    thanks in advance.

  • after doing some further research i found out that the wrong password attemps happen near the time of the periodic reset.

    manual reconnects do not cause this behaviour.

    i will now try to capture a periodic rest with wireshark.
