Hi, I have a Windows XP computer connecting to a FreeBSD 4.8 Stable box running PPPoE Daemon. The connection, disconnection works perfectly - however if I yank out the cable of 'live' PPPoE connection (or terminate it via a windows crash) on the Windows XP PC, the tunnel interface fails to be placed in a 'down' state on the PPPoE FreeBSD box. This results in a debug error informing me that:
Error: ipcp_InterfaceUp: unable to set ip address repeatadly. Only a reboot seems to resolve the issue. I assume this message is referring to the fact it thinks the IP address is in use and bound to a tunnel currently in an 'UP' state. Does PPP not maintain a link state? Is this a bug? Or is their a way around the problem so that when a user terminates, the tunnel is brought down gracefully at the FreeBSD end, freeing the IP address? My ppp.conf is: default: set log Chat Command Phase enable chap allow mode direct enable proxy disable ipv6cp set mru 1472 set mtu 1472 set ifaddr 126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52 accept dns Many Thanks Colin. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
