Re: Problem accessing internet?

Try turning off tcp_window_scaling.

# sysctl -w net.ipv4.tcp_window_scaling=0

Then retry your stalled connections.

I actually get a similar problem, not meaning to hijack threads or anything, but I've done that and still have the problem. I go to
http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/ea.jsp
click "Download" on the JRE link and it stalls waiting for javashoplm.sun.com

# more /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_ecn
0
# more /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_window_scaling
0

As that's all I could think of that might cause this problem...is there anything else that I need to disable to get around Sun's broken firewall? ;)
