Hi,

I have tried using
	calldelay 15
	server $myserver burst prefer
	.........

to (pre)start up my notorious ISDN dialup connection.
i have problems with that.

in my (tcpdump) logs i can see

	the initial ntpv4 client packet
  	the syslog info from the ciscobox that
		indicates the dialup being connected
and then
	nothing.
	the initial packet seems to be dropped ( bahh, world loss )

	dialup is taken down after timeout ( ~75 seconds )

if the connection is already up
	the initial ntpv4 client packet
	answer from server
   delay 15 seconds
	3 pairs of
	query answer packets.
	

My question:
is the current poll aborted when the first packet is not answered?

g!
uwe
