Description

In some situations PPPoE fails to reconnect after an upstream outage or making a change locally. The system file logs:

Nov 21 16:45:32 pfsense ppp: [wan_link0] Link: reconnection attempt 4
Nov 21 16:45:32 pfsense ppp: [wan_link0] PPPoE: can't connect "[1b]:"->"mpd17126-0" and "[4e]:"->"left": No such file or directory
Nov 21 16:45:32 pfsense ppp: [wan_link0] can't remove hook mpd17126-0 from node "[1b]:": No such file or directory
Nov 21 16:45:32 pfsense ppp: [wan_link0] Link: DOWN event
Nov 21 16:45:32 pfsense ppp: [wan_link0] LCP: Down event
Nov 21 16:45:32 pfsense ppp: [wan_link0] Link: reconnection attempt 5 in 4 seconds

This appears to primarily affect PPPoE connections running over a VLAN but there have been reports of it in general.

It brings down all PPPoE connections when this happens regardless of where the local change was made.
