I have an IPCop installation with red-orange-green networks.
I have been getting a number of rx errors on the green interface. As I understand it, that means on data coming from the green zone (and presumably heading for the red zone).
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0E:2E:B8:AC:B1
inet addr:192.168.0.254 Bcast:192.168.0.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1

RX bytes:53901007 (51.4 MB) TX bytes:252286301 (240.5 MB)
Interrupt:9 Base address:0xb000
What causes this?
Is it a problem on the green network itself?
Does anyone have a good reference for the error types on ifconfig output?
They do not seem to be at a very high level, but I would like to understand it better.
My first reaction was to try another NIC. That didn't fix it
So what's it mean then?
