Summary0000867: Automatically redial PPPoE at a special time of each day
DescriptionIn germany and probably other countries, most of the DSL providers cut the connection after 24 hours. If you dialed in first time at 15:00h each day at 15:00 the connection in cut off and the endian dials the connection. But each connection is lost.

It would be a nice feature to set a cut off and redial to a given time, for example at 3 o'clock in the night to prevent connection loss during the day.

we are aware of the problem.

In the meantime you can create a little cron-script which will be called daily (put it in /etc/cron.daily/), which then disconnects the uplinks.

with "stopalluplinks" you can stop all uplinks, they automatically reconnect then.

or you can use /etc/rc.d/rc.uplink stop <uplinkname> in order to stop a specific uplink

example for a cronscript:

thanks, that's a nice workaround.
