Ultra 5 SSH/Ethernet Lockup
I have Woody installed on an Ultra 5. Frequently SSH sessions to this
machine seem to "lockup". Specifically, I have observed the following:
SSH connections to the U5 box using SSH Protocol 2 almost always fail
before the key exchange can complete.
With SSH Protocol 1 I can login and work for a few minutes, but the
connection still freezes after a little while.
Using a 3Com NIC rather than the built-in NIC, the problem does not go
I tried to connect to my network using a different network jack, but
the problem persisted.
Although one SSH session may freeze, I can successfully open new SSH
sessions (ie. without having to reboot.)
As best I can tell, no error messages are produced in the log files
when the SSH session freezes.
Using kernel-image-2.2.20-sun4u instead of kernel-image-2.4.19-sun4u
does not seem to help.
I would be grateful if anyone could tell me what might be the source
of my problems.
