Thanks for your replies.
Ugh. I think this conversation is starting to go beyond my original intent.
I used an example of "pulling the network cable" to indicate a disruption in the flow of traffic. DSL/PPPoE is not 100% reliable. Service interruptions are bound to happen beyond my control. When they do I don't want to have to worry about having to manually re: initiate the ppp process. That's all.
In the ppp.conf I have values for reconnect...etc which I had figured would reconnect when needed.
default: ... set redial 15 0 set reconnect 15 10000 pppoe: ...
Yes I understand what a gateway is. How my ISP has configured their side I am unaware of. My IP always stays the same. My gateway does not (when not enforced) however the one assigned to me is contiguous.
MY address range: 192.168.20.2 SN 255.255.255.248
Gateway assigned is: 192.168.20.1
However if I don't manually set the gateway I seem to get other gateway's which are probably from one superblock owned by my ISP.
Regarding manually setting my IP/GW
set ifaddr 192.168.20.2 192.168.20.1 255.255.255.248
route -n show -inet | grep tun0 default 192.168.20.1 UGS 0 727 - 8 tun0 192.168.20.1 192.168.20.2 UH 1 2 1500 4 tun0
If I don't set the address/gateway
#set ifaddr 192.168.20.2 192.168.20.1 255.255.255.248
route -n show -inet | grep tun0 default 192.168.40.1 UGS 5 252 - 8 tun0 192.168.40.1 192.168.20.2 UH 1 0 1492 4 tun0
Also note if setting the same IP/Gateway on my hardware appliance the connection works fine.
PF Load Failure
Also note that after removing the dynamic identifiers in pf.conf for ($ext_if) my pf fails to load again when I restart since tun0 is not ready. I have added up to hostname.tun0.
I'm curious about implementing "kernel" level PPPoE as apposed to what I have now. What is required? It sound's like this may have more desired results.
Thanks for all your help!
