I am using a leased line to connect 2 linux server with ppp.
The command line is /usr/sbin/pppd /dev/ttyC0 38400
the remote server is/was redhat 6.0
The local was redhat 5.2 with the option 'passive'
Now, I upgraded to 7.1 and when I try to shut the server down, it fails on
killing the ppp connection (and hangs before unmounting the disks ...)
At the Killall action, he cut the lines, but they connect again 5 sec later
any ideas ? of course I could remove the 'persist' option, but in case of
phone line failure, I need the modem AND the ppp the reestablish the
thanks for help,
