Description steve 1999-10-21 18:19:25 UTC
I have reproduced this on 5.2 and 6.0 and have not tried
6.1.  run this:

#ifup ppp0
#ifup ppp0
#ifdown ppp0

The connection cannot be brought down.

Comment 1 Michael K. Johnson 1999-11-22 18:56:59 UTC
We can't really fix this in the old versions; that's why we significantly
re-architected how we do PPP connections for 6.1.  We now have a "ppp-watch"
daemon that handles all this stuff and makes it reliable.  It has many other
benefits as well, such as making "ifup ppp0" synchronous.
