Pppd being killed?

I’ve recently aquired a Turris Omnia but I’m currently having some connection issues whereby I’m unable to get even an hours worth of uptime.

My curent setup is a Draytek Vigor 130 modem connected to a VDSL line with the Omnia configured to do PPPoE.

The Omnia is on version 3.10.

It seems to be able to establish the connection fine, however it doesn’t seem to be able to keep it. I’ve had a look at the pppd log and can see the following (this is from the last time the connection cut off):

Plugin rp-pppoe.so loaded.
RP-PPPoE plugin version 3.8p compiled against pppd 2.4.7
PPP session is 2109
Connected to xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx via interface eth1
Using interface pppoe-wan
Connect: pppoe-wan <--> eth1
CHAP authentication succeeded: CHAP authentication success
CHAP authentication succeeded
peer from calling number xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx authorized
local  IP address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
remote IP address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
primary   DNS address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
secondary DNS address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
Terminating on signal 15
Connect time 56.5 minutes.

I’m not sure what would be causing it to end (my limited understanding is that signal 15 is a SIGTERM but I’m not sure what would be sending that signal - pppd itself?)

Is there anything else I can attach or look which may shed some light on this?


Well I have tried swapping out the Omnia with my old Buffalo router running LEDE and once again I get a disconnect just before the hour mark.

So I’m putting this down as a coincidence that I only started seeing this after getting the Omnia and assume it’s an issue with the modem or line itself :-1:

sigterm sounds kinda specific… what comes to mind:

  • check uptime on the daytrak (iirc their powersupply is wonky)
  • increase log-level of pppd and look for hints

Yeah, I swapped out the modem not long after my second post and I can see the connection has now been up for 22 hours and counting.

So definitely looks to be something wrong with the draytek
