RHEL Strange network problem

RHEL4 Network problem

I have recently been experiencing a very strange problem with a different RHEL 4 server, providing a number of different services. Basically, it appears that packets are occasionally delayed or
dropped, apparently randomly.

plz help me

Hi Sateesh,

It'd be a bit more helpful if you could be a little more specific about your problem.

Please explain.
