Another possibility is MTU size problems, if for some bizarre reason the MTU on your Linux box is weird, i.e. smaller, you might be seeing issues with re-packaging larger packets. However, if the box is firewalling, and you do have it set up to automatically defragment all in/out bound packets then you will probably see a latency as it has to cache each packet to re-assemble them. It occurs to me that I no longer actually know what mechanism to enable / disable to affect ip fragging with firewalls. hmm.. time to research. js On Wed, 2002-11-06 at 06:55, Jonathan Bartlett wrote: > What about defragmenting?
