Having a problem with a couple of linux boxes I'm setting up at work...
On one I have networking set up just fine, except for those (thousands of)
ICMP redirect messages in /var/log/messages. That to me says something is
not as it should!
On the other box (diffrent networking card but otherwise just about
identical) I get the same messages, but it seems like the routing goes to
h*ll as soon as I start woring on the network. Ping etc. work just fine,
but if I attempt to cat a file that is larger than about 2k on a remote
host after telneting to it, the window seems to hang, and it is impossible
to get routing information. It looks like this:
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
And that's all she wrote :-/ If I run /etc/rc.d/init.d/network stop then
start the system comes back online.
My thinking is that I either haven't set the networking up correctly on
the boxes or that I'm missing something in the kernel. If anyone has any
idea of what the h*ll is going on I'd appreciate an email...my boss is
starting to look at me with that 'I thought you knew what you were doing'
Oh btw: were running RedHat linux 4.0 with kernel 2.0.18...haven't had
time to get the 4.2 CD just yet :-/
