Summary0000026: PPPoE reconfiguration may fail due to underlying network card settings
DescriptionIf a PPPoE connection is reconfigured (for example, a username/password change), the ClearOS system may fail to create the Internet connection. This is caused by a missing parameter in the underlying network card configuration.

When a PPPoE connection is configured, two sets of configuration files are required (ahhh PPPoE, will you ever be less kludgy?). For a typical ppp0 connection, the configuration files are:


The ifcfg-ppp0 contains all the PPPoE connection information, while the ifcfg-eth0 contains the physical network card configuration used by PPPoE:


The underlying operating system needs to have the network MAC address stored in its configuration. Without this MAC address, the name and order of network cards is indeterminate. This setting is missing when a PPPoE connection is reconfigured. That... can be bad.
