PPPoE - mpd: Error



  • Hi all,

    I'm using embeded pfSense image and running it on Alix. So far everything was fine. But now I experience problems with PPPoE (mpd).

    In pfSense's system log there appears the message:
    Apr 15 08:40:11 mpd: Incoming PPPoE connection request via vr0: for service "" from 00:11:09:70:1e:f0
    Apr 15 08:37:35 mpd: Incoming PPPoE connection request via vr0: for service "
    " from 00:03:0d:80:b1:49
    Apr 15 08:25:17 mpd: 192.168.120.1 -> 192.168.110.123
    Apr 15 08:25:17 mpd: IPADDR 192.168.110.123
    Apr 15 08:25:17 mpd: 192.168.110.123 is OK

    Since then all users (we have mostly Windows clients using XP and Vista) cannot authenticate to PPPoE getting "Error772: remote computer's network hardware is incompatible with the type of call requested."

    The only solution I have found so far is:
    i] I kill mpd by executing "kill -15 mpd" in pfSense command prompt
    ii] I start it again by executing "/usr/local/sbin/mpd -b -d /var/etc/mpd-vpn -p /var/run/mpd-vpn.pid pppoe"
    After this procedure PPPoE works again as seen in pfSense's system log:
    Apr 15 12:09:55 mpd: 192.168.120.1 -> 192.168.110.138

    The only thing I found here in forum is aldo's reply in http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,1935.0.html post.

    But I don't think it is Windows issue as we have on our network Win2k, WinXP, Vista or Mac PPPoE clients. I was wondering if it couldn't be an MTU size issue?

    I will be glad for any advice.

    Thankx to all.
