Tx, Peter! 

Now is everything cleared out. I want permanent connection, so PPPoE without
"dial on demand"



Hi Andrej!

Why not telling us, what you want to achieve and we'll tell you how to
configure that? Dial-on-demand is only needed for some people who do have an
internet connection which is payed by online time. m0n0wall dials out, when
where is need for it and hangs up the line after a specified idle timeout.
Without dial-on-demand, m0n0wall makes a connection to your ISP
automagically (and tries to reestablish the connection every time it's going
down -- for what reason whatever).

m0n0wall doesn't drop any connection as long as you don't select

If I do understand it the right way, the mpd (Multi-link PPP daemon for
FreeBSD) dials out, when where is demand for it and since the idle timeout
is set to "0", it never hangs up the line.
