:Linux: ppp0 auto reconnect

greetings
guys, I have ADSL through ppp0, How to set it to auto reconnect when
disconnected..
Thanks in advance


This script should do what you want.

============= reconnect_modem.sh =============
#!/bin/sh
#
# Script to check if modem is disconnected & try reconnecting
# Graham Smith - 01/02/2004
#
# set -x
result=$(/usr/bin/cinternet -i dsl0 -s | /usr/bin/grep disconnect)
#Checks the status of device dsl0 'disconnect'
if [ -n "$result" ]
then
/usr/bin/cinternet -i dsl0 -A #Start the interface.
sleep 10
else #The interface is up - Just exit
exit 0
fi
==================================

Just add the following line to your crontab, replacing with the path
you installed the script in. It checks to see if the modem has been disc
every 3 minutes.

4-59/3 * * * * /reconnect_modem.sh 2>&1 /dev/null

Rules of war (in a nutshell)

https://youtu.be/HwpzzAefx9M Since the beginning, humans have resorted to violence as a way to settle disagreements. Yet through the ages, people from around the world have tried to limit the brutality of war. It was this humanitarian spirit that led to the First Geneva Convention of 1864, and to the birth of modern International Humanitarian Law. Setting the basic limits on how wars can be fought, these universal laws of war protect those not fighting, as well as those no longer able to. To do this, a distinction must always be made between who or what may be attacked, and who or what must be spared and protected.
