Does pptp-client interface auto start?

Sun Sep 16, 2012 4:10 am

I am trying to setup a pptp tunnel between to RB's, and am setting up an interface called "tunnel" on the client. The interface is a pptp-client. (not dial on demand)

I *THOUGHT* that I would have to start the tunnel manually (somehow), and use netwatch to restart it if the tunnel goes down.

However, shortly after creating the interface I see it starting to attempt connections. Is this normal? Do pptp-client interfaces just auto-start and keep trying forever to connect?

Thanks

Yes, it's normal behavior. You don't need to monitor the connection and restart it manually.
