Re: kernel 2.4.0 and connections problem

Sorry, I was absent for few days.

I wasn't clear. My server is connected to LAN and I have no ppp. Users I
talked about
connect to server using their own ISP. So I've go only etheret packets from
a ISP.
Loggicaly there are two possibilities I suppose.
1) Linux kernel error disclosed only if packet was touched by ppp
2) An error at users' ISP which is ignored by 2.2.18 by default

The 1st is less possible because this means that ppp changing contens of ip
anyhow all packets went throu my firewall also based on 2.4.0.
If my thinking is right the only one possibilities is to change somewhat
2.4.0 kernel. But what.
