I have an DSL-connected server running with openSUSE 13.1. This
server has an on-demand DSL connection which should be "always on",
because I use the server from outside (using Dyndns). In
/etc/sysconfig/network/providers/provider0 there is
My problem is, that I need a nearly useless service ('ping' or
'fetchmail' for instance) which starts network requests regularly so
that the DSL connection starts and stays alive.
Is there a recommended way to start DSL without any network request,
so that it's nearly always on? In openSUSE documentation I only
found two alternatives: always-on and manually. Both are not ideal.
(I know, that the provider breaks the connection every 24 hours. The
router should reconnect than.)
