Is there some sort of simple way to check if the network is behaving
correctly, other than ping, ping doesn't cut it. I've sometimes
experienced a strange situation where if I rlogin into machines that I
normally can without any password, suddenly I have to entire a password,
and then the system seems to be missing lots of commands.
Then there was a situation where I tried to access a file that I can
normally access any time, but I was getting a message saying the file
can't be found.
I was trying to think of a simple way to test if something strange is
happening with the network, this could be useful to some scripts I have
running. One idea is to create a test file on in the directory I will
be using and occasionally try to cat the file to see if the file can be
thanks for any ideas.
