Net_sendpacket error - NO CLUES - Debian 64-bit


I have been hosting Game-Servers on Dedi/VPS servers from 5 years. I've never had this error before. There's a recent Debian 64-bit machine I bought and hosted 2 Game-Servers on them. Ram/CPU was under even 10% so that couldn't be the cause.

When started, the servers were good but 2 days later, one of the Game-Server console started giving this error in about a 100 lines and growing:

Net_sendpacket error: resource temporarily unavailable to IP : Port

I turned off that server and the next day,

The other server also showed the same error with a different IP : Port.

Both of the times, IP : Port was different.

This caused the system to destabilize, the pings on the whole VPS went high if servers were turned on and it also caused more than 150GB of my bandwidth to be used up just in 2 days and I have a bandwidth limit of 200GB.

I've searched Google and it looks a Firewall/Network issue.

I've deleted IPtables and also modified the possible network config values in /proc/sys/net but nothing has helped me. Restarting the machine also didn't prove anything Good. I don't want to do an OS-reload before I'm even sure it will be fixed.

Is it a problem with the Host machine that hosts my VPS. I rent from . Maybe the packets are overflowing on it or something.

Please help as it would be appreciated.
