Restart WAN (pptp) via cron



  • Hi guys,

    i did a lot of searching on this topic regarding pfsense but unfortunately did not find anything.

    My Provider (A1 adsl in austria) forces a reconnect every 24h(?).
    I have set up their modem in SU mode to manage the connection from pfsense.
    Unfortunately i have to use a wan pptp connection since the provider does not support pppoe.

    My issue is that i'd like to have the forced disconnect at a set time rather then let the provider decide.
    So i would need to set a cron job to disconnect and connect the wan interface at a set time.

    Is this even possible? I saw that an auto reconnect option is present when configuring a pppoe wan connection but unfortunately this option is not there when using pptp.

    kind regards
    rehajel
