RH 7.3 Networking Issues
For some odd reason, the powers that be decided that we have to use RH 7.3 for a particualar app deployment.
I have successfully configured a Dell 1750 with Broadcom 5700 ethernet NICs to work. I am having one problem though.
When I try to SSH to the box from a windows based client (putty in my case) I get connected, but after a few minutes (2 to 5) get disconnected. Infact if I leave the screen alone or keep on pounding the keys does not make one bit of difference. The end result is the same.
If I ssh into this same box from another linux box then the connection remains open for as long as I want. I am at a loss as to explain this behaviour. I do not see any error messages either. I have captured some of Putty ssh data in a log and it is not helpful either. I have it excerpted below if you need it.
Any and all help in identifying and fixing the problem is greatly appreciated. ThanX much for your help in advance.
