Description Michael Kirschner 2005-07-11 20:28:12 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; de-DE; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
For special reasons, I am using two ISP's via DSL. For each of them I created an individual network device (ppp0, ppp1) which is configured with the resp. login data + password, and uses the same network card (eth0). After saving and rebooting, if I try to activate ppp0 or ppp1, I get an error message. If I delete one of the two devices (regardless which one), the leftover device connects properly.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
system-config-network 1.3.26

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create ppp0 device for DSL ISP one
2. Create ppp1 device for DSL ISP two
3. Make sure both devices are mapped to the same network hardware (eth0)
4. Save and reboot
5. Activate ppp0 or ppp1

Actual Results:  Error message, saying that the network device cannot be activated.

Expected Results:  Connection to the selected ISP

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Fedora Core 4 is no longer maintained.

Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the
current Fedora release, please reopen this bug and assign it to the
corresponding Fedora version.
