i have a strange problem with my new vdsl2 connection. From time to time my modem (Draytek Vigor 166) loose the syncronisation to it’s dslam and so i get offline. The modem is configured as bridge and IPFire does the dialin.
If i don’t recognise the offline state because i’m at the office, the IPFire is not able to reconnect. In the RED Log i only get this messages:
12:48:08 pppd: Plugin rp-pppoe.so loaded.
12:48:08 pppd: RP-PPPoE plugin version 3.8p compiled against pppd 2.4.8
12:48:08 pppd: pppd 2.4.8 started by root, uid 0
12:48:44 pppd: PPP session is 698

12:48:44 pppd: Using interface ppp0

12:48:44 pppd: Connection terminated.
12:48:44 pppd: Sent PADT
12:48:44 pppd: Exit.
After i called the provider to give me a feedback, they told me the connection could not be establised because of wrong credentials (password). So i re entered the password in the ipfire wui and the dial in works again!
And i truley enter always the same password by copy&pase from my password manager!
I don’t have an idear where to start a analysis. Can someone give me a hint, where to start or what to check?
The system runs core 150 an was newly installed with core149.
