Default pppd over ssl worked until dreytek ADSL / broadband added to the mix

Hi folks.

I've set up another Fedora box as a VPN gateway. Working locally on the LAN
everything worked fine. However, I've just installed it now at a remote site
using that site's Dreytek Vigor ADSL router over a BT broadband and now I
have a problem with the pppd connection constantly dropping / raising.

The pppd link is raised using the following:

/usr/sbin/pppd updetach noauth passive
pty "ssh $HOST -P -o Batchmode=yes /usr/sbin/pppd nodetach notty noauth"
$LocIP:$RemIP

Which worked before and still does. However, as the /var/log/messages extract
shows, there is definitely a problem.

Can anyone suggest what I need to do to fix it.

Gary
