ADSL/PPPoE Status log


ADSL/PPPoE Status log
« on: August 15, 2002, 09:28:26 PM »
Hi All,

I'm using SME server as my gateway with an ADSL connection.  It's working like a champ, flawlessly.  Fantastic product, can't brag about enough...

Our ISP has not been the most reliable and we have in the past had frequent outage issues.  Since hooking up the SME box, when the internet goes down, it automatically reconnects when the service is available again.  This makes outages more transparent (previously, a reconnect after an outage required manual intervention).

Here's the question:  Is there a specific log that I can examine to see what the internet connection statistics are?

You can views system logs through the server manager or through console access as root user.

ADSL activity is logged to messages (/var/logs/messages).

You can use a command like this in the console
more /var/log/messages | grep adsl
more /var/log/messages | grep pppoe

Hope this helps
