A better approach would be to *schedule* the disconnect -> connect
I have the same problem with my DSL provider in France. Their PPPoE
session lasts 7 days, no more. So it would be very convenient to plan
the release of the PPPoE session, say on every Sunday at 4:00 AM.
As I use m0n0wall for my VPN tunnels, I'm sure the PPPoE session won't
expire in the middle of the week because of a power loss had
"programmed" it 7 days ago...
For the moment, I do it with curl (on a 24/7 running server) calling the
reboot.php page, but that's not so clean :-(
I just see one solution: a cron daemon in m0n0wall. I've already asked
Manuel and this topic has already been discussed on the list.
To be continued...
