Re: routing in presence of PPP
When ppp is started, these messages are recorded
in the syslog.
... pppd[n]: Couldn't set pass-filter in kernel:
... pppd[n]: not replacing existing default route
... pppd[n]: Cannot determine ethernet address
for proxy ARP
Routing fails, of course.
Does anyone recognize the problem or have a
suggestion? Can anyone explain the complaint
about the pass-filter?
Thanks, Peter Easthope
If you have a line in ppp.conf that looks like:
add default HISADDR
... try changing it to:
add! default HISADDR
This will force PPP to overwrite whatever currently configured default
route that you have.
