Sending files w. MacPPP to Solaris 2.4

Sending files w. MacPPP to Solaris 2.4

Post by Anders F Erikss » Thu, 02 Feb 1995 08:40:33

  We have some problems when sending files (using ftp) or large mail
(using Eudora) from Macs using MacPPP through a Xyplex access server. The
problem is that the transfer hangs after just a few KB. The mail and ftp
server is an Intel based maching running Solaris x86 2.4. As far as I've
seen the problem only affect Macs sending over PPP ? I haven't heard
anything like it from our PC users ? and it works fine on the local
network (from both Macs and PCs). If it matters the modems connected to
our access server are USR Courier V.34.

  Suggestions, anyone?

1. send mmap timed out on Solaris 2.4

I recently upgraded from Apache 1.2.4 to Apache 1.3.6 on a Sparc using
Solaris 2.4. I notice following problems:

        Some files are not getting served, but repeated access helps,
          in such a case the connection stays open until timeout
        Messages like "send mmap timed out" appear often

I compiled Apache myself gcc without getting error messages, but I am
not sure if I can trust my own gcc compilation.

Here my questions:

        Can I use an Apache binary compiled for sun4c-sun-solaris2.250
          on solaris 2.24?
        Or has someone a binary for Solaris 2.4 (including Expire and
          Proxy module)?
        Do I need special patches for solaris 2.4?
        What can be wrong?

Thank you very much for any hint.

PS: I know I should upgrade my OS but this will take some time.

Kind regards
