PPoE link dropping and occasionally failing to reconnect
« on: August 08, 2017, 12:02:23 am »
I am using my Almond Plus to connect via a PPoE wireless broadband connection. My connection drops out frequently and when I turn on logging on the PPP daemon, I see this

Code: [Select]
LCP: timeout sending Config-Requests
Connection terminated.
Modem hangup
Waiting for 1 child processes...
  script /usr/sbin/pppoe -p /var/run/pppoe.conf-pppoe.pid.pppoe -I eth1 -T 80 -U  -m 1412   , pid 31698
pppoe: Timeout waiting for PADO packets
Script /usr/sbin/pppoe -p /var/run/pppoe.conf-pppoe.pid.pppoe -I eth1 -T 80 -U  -m 1412    finished (pid 31698), status = 0x1

My main system log includes these mesages:

So it looks like there's a problem with the current libcrypt on my AlmondPlus, possibly making GRE not work?
The PPTP howto http://pptpclient.sourceforge.net/howto-diagnosis.phtml#gre needs me to use tcpdump, which isn't available on the AlmondPlus, so my ability to troubleshoot this has hit a brick wall.
