Adding to my previous post, some details that might be of interest --

FreeBSD 5.3-RELEASE-p8
PPP Version 3.2 - Nov  4 2004

And our ppp.conf --

# set log Phase Chat LCP IPCP CCP tun command
  set log Phase Chat tun command
  ident user-ppp VERSION (built COMPILATIONDATE)

  set device PPPoE:rl0
  set authname **************
  set authkey **************
  set speed sync
  set mtu max 1492
  set mru max 1492
  set timeout 0
  set redial 0 0
  enable dns
  add default HISADDR

# problematic stuff?
# enable lqr
# enable echo
# enable forcelcpecho
  deny lqr

# nat and portmaps
  nat enable yes
  nat use_sockets yes
  nat unregistered_only yes
  nat proto gre
  nat port tcp 1723
  nat port tcp 3389
  nat port tcp 80

Hi all

Using LQR, our ADSL connection eventually (after ~10-20 hrs) bombs out
with *Too many LQR packets lost*.

We tried 'deny lqr', which lasts about as long, but gives NGM_PPPOE_CLOSE.

Any ideas on other settings we could try? I stumbled across 'enable
forcelcpecho' but it isn't recognised by our pppd.
