Inactive interfaces, PPPOE connection

Inactive interfaces, PPPOE connection
I am having some problems after switching from providers. Whatpulse on my Ubuntu machine is no longer detecting traffic on the eth0 interface.

The interfaces are setup like this.
Eth0 <--> Switch <--> WAN
Eth1 <--> Router <--> Local network

The switch sends the traffic from my provider from vlan6 to eth0 on my Ubuntu machine, vlan6 being my internet traffic. Before I can use this connection I need to login using a PPPOE connection.

Whatpulse lists 3 interfaces in total and only eth1 is shown as active (belonging to my local network).

ppp0 -> inactive
eth1 -> active
eth0 -> inactive

It was detecting traffic for a little while on the ppp0 and eth0 after updating to version 2,5 but after restarting whatpulse it stopped showing those interfaces as active again.


Is there any way to use whatpulse on the eth0 interface of the ubuntu machine?

RE: Inactive interfaces, PPPOE connection
Could you make your app.log file visible for me somewhere?

If it did register 'for a little while' are you sure you haven't simply ignored the interface? Haven't really seen it work and then just stop mid-flight..

The issue is probably related with the fact that it failed to open the interfaces but not sure why it is failing. Hope this tells you something essential.

RE: Inactive interfaces, PPPOE connection
Nope, the "failed to open" message is about getting a description for the interface. Unfortunately the capturing methods in the OS that the client leverages don't seem to be able to handle PPPOE interfaces, there are others having issues with other applications that capture traffic as well. I don't think there's anything you can do about it, if the client doesn't get data, it can't process it..
