 Subject:  AW: [m0n0wall] Second total freeze of 1.2b3
 Date:  Mon, 21 Feb 2005 13:30:12 +0100
All my WRAPS with 1.2b3 work stable so far, only thing is, that IPSEC doesn´t work with any of the
1.2bs in the following situation:

m0n0 with fixed IP ---- m0n0 with dynamic IP

everything is configured right and the tunnel comes up the first time you use it. After the lifetime
has expired the new keys can´t be exchanged and the tunnel doesn´t come up again unless you click
"Save" on the IPSEC-settingpage of the dynamic m0n0 without changing anything. I reported this
behavior before, but nobody cared about it. :-( Going back to 1.11 works rockstable.

Another thing I found out is that there are problems with newer dsl-modems and m0n0s pppoe. I can
provide logs, if you need them, but it seems that the link up request times out although the
servername of the distant server can be seen. This happens with more than one specific vendor (for
example the new netgear modem DG632B, products from t-com, ....) I am very unhappy about that, as
the problem seems to appear with nearly every new modem I get to test. I tested different providers
and also have different connections to test on. The same modems work with other products on the same
wanconnection. This happens also with 1.11.

I know, this would be enough for two other posts, but I already posted and no one noticed. Maybe
it´s reaching the right people now...

Can anyone with this problem confirm (or disprove) that this does not
happen with 1.2b2? Just because somebody said their problems with a
WRAP board and 1.2b3 went away after going back to 1.2b2 (which I
can't find an explanation for).

FWIW, I set up a Linux 2.6.9 based iptables firewall with rp-pppoe on
a net4801 a few weeks ago. Worked fine during testing, but as soon as
I made it productive, it locked up completely every 12 hours or so.
Getting a Senao miniPCI wireless card to work reliably at full speed
without locking up using the latest hostap driver wasn't possible
either (even tried LEAF to make sure it's not just my Linux setup).
So all is not well there either...

OTOH, I've been running 1.2b3 on two net4501s ever since it was
released and have not had a single lockup so far.
