we're having some issue on a SUN 5.8 machine.
first of all, the server is on his network (i.e. 10.x.x.x) and we can login using an ssh server which is on another network (196.x.x.x), so there're firewalls openings, in the middle, which allow us to connect.
I can login to this machine, switch to application user and, when I try to do a cat or to vi a log file, session hangs and, after a while, server kicks me off. Same behaviour when I cat or vi with my user. tail. more and grep work fine swap partition is 1% used
We had a similar issue, in the past, but at that time a faulty disk was found and, after its replacement, all worked fine. This time, SUN engineer says that all seems fine. Other people, connecting from other networks or from the same 10.x.x.x network, are not able to replicate the issue (means, they can cat and vi the files) so they're guessing is something related to the connection.
last night we also rebooted the server, due to a fan replacement, but the issue still occour...
any idea? thanks
