Package: pppoeconf
Version: 1.0.14
Severity: normal

 Please, increase default values of lcp-echo-interval and lcp-echo-failure.
 Default values make connections fail and disconnect quite easily, at
 least with my DSL provider, which is painful when you have a dynamic IP
 being assigned. I am currently using lcp-echo-interval 60 and
 lcp-echo-failure 10, but I have not finetuned that.

 Also, please document in README.Debian what those "timeout waiting for
 PADO socket" can mean, and why your lose your DSL connection, and how
 you can fix that. Perhaps that is not the only reason for that to
 happen, but can hint a lot of people in the right direction.

 BTW, I wasn't suffering such bug when using pppoe package, it only
 appeared when I switched to use kernel and pppd plugin.


P.S. Though this is a "whislist" class bug report, I'm keeping normal
severity because it makes connections fail, which is a real problem.

Source: pppoeconf
Source-Version: 1.11

Your bug is fixed in the latest version of pppoeconf.
I add a notice for PADO packets timeout in README.Debian
to explain the problem and how adjust lcp-echo-* values.

Note: manual close because bug number typo in debian/changelog.
