Server goes online when started and stays online ...

I am migrating my home lan from Win to RH9 environment. The server is now running RH9 and Squid and I used firehol to configure iptables. I have a dial up ISDN connection
I have other PC's connected to the network and they can all surf the net etc.
I have added demand=yes and idletime=180 to the ppp0 config.

The problem is that when I boot the server as part of the boot process it dials out and establish a connection and keeps the connection live.
I am trying to figure out why the connection is established or why the connection is not dropped after 180 seconds of inactivity.

Any hint is welcome.

Welcome to LQ.

It could be that there is still some sort of network activity. Try running "tcpdump -n" to see if there is any sign of network activity (if you don't use -n it will keep doing dns lookups and definately stay online)
