Repost: Interesting Networking Problem
Realized that I sent previous message as HTML.... No responses so far, so
thought I'd try again and in text-only this time. Please help if you
I have a couple of Debian 1.3.x systems on the 'Net that are experiencing an
interesting problem. These systems are located in BC, Canada. I am
getting messages from people in the Netherlands that they are having
problems accessing these systems on occassion.
For the most part, they are working fine, but then, all of a sudden, they
just seem to drop away. Can't access via web, ftp, telnet, and ping times
out. After "a while" (anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours),
everything acts normally again.
If I telnet into another system that is "near" these problem ones,
everything is working fine. From there, I can telnet in, ping, etc.
Even more interesting is that one of these systems is a router to another
network "behind" it. Even if the "router" is experiencing the problems
above, I can get through to the network behind it without any problems....
So, at first, I thought it might be just a routing problem - timout's
somewhere - but that doesn't explain why systems behind the router are still
Any ideas on what might be happening here?
TIA for any suggestions,
