Beware of soapy frogs: Linux (ubuntu 10.04) ppp maxfail 0 and persist not working? (WORKAROUND)

Finally I found a solution/workaround to the annoying problem that my pptp vpn connection did not automatically reconnect when disconnected!

Quite a bit of sysadmin work this week. I finally got proper backups set up on my server. I guess I’ve been pushing my luck earlier but now the daily backups are transfered to another machine in a different location, so it should be fairly safe.

I’ve also upgraded to the latest Ubuntu release. Upgrading to the 8.04 release wasn’t harder than:

apt-get update

apt-get upgrade

apt-get install update-manager-core

do-release-upgrade

Ubuntu has made linux a joy to work with!
