1. sl0 RX overrun 20 TX overrun 57

Hi all!

Any comment about the following?

I have two Linux boxes connected via CSLIP and direct wire.
No matter whether the speed is 9600, 19200 or 38400 bauds.
Kernel version is 1.1.37 (but 1.0.8 acts in a similar way).

Routing is set up correctly, ping works brilliantly in both
directions. Telnet works so slowly that it times out before
I can log in. Ftp also works very slowly. ps shows that
in.telnetd on the server side is running. Ifconfig shows
that some overrun of packets occurs on sl0 (ethernet works OK):

Can anyone explain, what does this overrun mean
and what influence has it on performance?

                                        Anto,

2. normal user, want to mount network shares

3. RX packet errors,overruns & pcmcia anomilies

4. why isn't libg++ shared?

5. 3c905 100Mbps: RX-ERR RX-DRP RX-OVR?

6. using automounter for local filesystems. any advantages?

7. Meaning of RX/TX packet overruns in SLIP?

8. Advantages using commercial SSL over Free?

9. eth rx overruns

10. Rx-overrun

11. 100% RX packages overruns..

12. FIFO overrun

13. zs1b: fifo overrun on Sparc 20
