Description Pierre Ossman 2003-11-13 09:44:03 UTC
Description of problem: ppp-watch as it is now calls ifup-ppp to bring up the interface. I'd like it to call ifup instead allowing for more generic use. The reason for this is that I'm using a VPN solution based on PPP over SSH and ppp-watch is great for maintaining the integrity of the tunnel. The system is designed to integrate into initscripts (so that one can use ifup/ifdown vpn2) so I'd like to reuse as much of the framework as possible. With the current layout, this isn't possible however... I've done these patches myself and the tunnel system is very stable. It would be nice to have these modifications (the ppp-watch patch, not the tunnel system) in the main release so I wouldn't have to run a modified version... A summary of what I've done to make it work can be found at http://projects.drzeus.cx/initscripts-generic More or less all I've done is make ppp-watch call ifup and make sure that the new scripts called can handle the "daemon" parameter that ppp-watch provides. Also I had to tweak some other scripts to get automatic routes to work.

Created attachment 97686 [details] Complete patch Sorry it took so long but here is the patch against the current stable initscripts (7.42.2-1 from FC1). It also includes a fix for bug 92023 since it was difficult to do anything useful with the tunnels witout this fix.
Comment 2 Miloslav Trmač 2006-03-20 14:46:55 UTC
Hello, is this still relevant? http://projects.drzeus.cx/initscripts-generic/ says the user of these hooks is not developed anymore.
Comment 3 Pierre Ossman 2006-03-20 18:15:29 UTC
Correct, they are not. So personally I don't care anymore. :)
Comment 4 Miloslav Trmač 2006-03-20 21:23:01 UTC
Thanks. In that case let's keep the current code, adding hooks without a known user would just make possible changes in the future harder.
