When m0n0wall went to version 1.2, I found that I had to reboot the firewall
whenever I made changes to PPTP user accounts.
Now in 1.21 I have to reboot the firewall when I disable or enable IPsec. I
have a VPN tunnel that drops periodically and enable/disable is the easiest
way to reset it. If there's another method, please let me know.
Is there any particular reason why these actions now require a reboot?
Since a reboot flushes my DHCP leases I can't update these services without
disrupting everything else. I've seen some discussion regarding other
services that require a reboot, but IPsec and PPTP weren't mentioned in
