NTP server stop when pppoe is shortly down to reconnect

  • Searching for a while now why my ntp server stop every morning.
    Found out that this happens only if one of my two pppoe wan interface reconnecting.

    Note: I restart the NTP server manuel at 10:20.
    2.1-RELEASE (amd64)

  • Same problem here on 2.1-RELEASE (amd64) in an ESXi VM.

    I'm able to restart NTP manually once PPPoE is back up.

  • Is this a known issue?
    By the way, this happens only if my default gateway (VDSL1) reconnect.

    Have a look on a other pfsense with only one pppoe wan connection, ntp work here fine.
    See in the log that the ntp server stop for a reconnect of the wan pppoe connection, is it possible that the ntp server start again
    to fast?

    "fixed" it with the Service Watchdog package  ;)
