The monopoly ADSL provider in australia recently began migrating users to new hardware which has been configured to ignore LQR packets (RFC1989). This was a simple way for the FreeBSD box to decide if the link is down or not. So now I cant use "enable lqr" in my ppp.conf, otherwise the session gets dropped every 3 minutes or so from lack of a LQR response from the provider. I'd like to have some way for the box to detect link failure and to try connecting again, but would rather not implement a "custom" solution such as scripting regular pings etc.

I have had someone suggest trying LCP echo to detect link failure, however from what I have read so far this seems only to be an option in kernel-mode pppd, not user-mode ppp. Can anyone point me in the direction of a PPPoE solution that makes use of an established protocol?
