ADSL modem fun !


Hi,
I want to make a script which allows me to reconnect to the internet.

But kill the stalled connection first.


I have a hunch that if I use the commands from the services information:

root 14687 0.0 0.3 1348 464 ? S 22:49 0:00 /sbin/ifplugd -w -b -i eth0
root 17990 0.0 0.4 1416 584 ? S 22:49 0:00 /usr/sbin/modem_run -v 0 -m -f /usr/share/speedtouch/mgmt.o
root 13797 0.0 0.6 2020 872 ? S 22:50 0:00 /usr/sbin/pppd call adsl
root 9579 0.0 0.5 5980 696 ? S< 22:50 0:00 /usr/sbin/pppoa3 -c -vpi 0 -vci 38
root 11363 0.0 0.5 5980 696 ? S< 22:50 0:00 /usr/sbin/pppoa3 -c -vpi 0 -vci 38
root 24360 0.0 0.5 5980 696 ? S< 22:50 0:00 /usr/sbin/pppoa3 -c -vpi 0 -vci 38
root 21792 0.1 0.5 5980 696 ? S< 22:50 0:00 /usr/sbin/pppoa3 -c -vpi 0 -vci 38



It will work.

don't know how to kill it though.

But how would I construct this script? (basic sh knowledge)


Thanks alot if you can help in any way at all.

Neil

Hi

You could kill pppd and pppoa3 using the pids kept in /var/run:

#!/bin/bash

kill $(cat /var/run/pppoa3-modemN.pid)
kill $(cat /var/run/ppp0.pid)

Where N is 0 by default. And then reconnect using

pppd call adsl

You don't need to restart modem_run afaik. There is another way to do this using named pipes, but I couldn't get it to work.
