RE: apache dies with pppoe

I know on my FW/Router (Linksys) I can disable DHCP, can you do that with
yours?  If so than disable your DHCP server on your FW/Router and have a
fixed IP address only on your PC.  Also Is there a option in your FW/router
to send Keep alive packets, to maintain your IP address on your FW/router?

I agree ... note that the problem can be systematicly recreated by opening
port 80 on my FW.

I don't believe that it is the FW/Router either. I believe it has more to do
with how my DSL modem times-out, thus forcing an IP change.

I don't know and I'm not sure I'm ready to find out yet either. It still may
be a configuration issue (and I'm going to look at that again right now,)
but the fact that it does "run and run" until I open it up (to the Internet)
is perplexing.
