Weird server error

I'm hosting my webserver on Fedora Core 3

The httpd works well for 1 minute only..and then refuses to respond to the outside world

I have to restart my eth0 again in order to connect to my httpd through outside world...

during the "downed" period, I can still connect to the httpd via (telnet)

I cannot connect to my ftp, ssh during this period either

restarting the httpd does not help...

if I've logged into the server thru ssh already...I can still communicate with it thru's just that I cannot establish anymore new connections...

so I'm wondering what's wrong...

it will work again if it is idled for about 10 minutes.......then downed again after 1 minute....

Please help
Many thanks~

Sounds like an ethernet card problem rather than an apache problem. I'd say try replacing the nic first, they're cheap and easy to replace.

but if it's the problem of the nic...then I shouldn't be able to remain connected to the server via ssh when it doesn't accept anymore new connections...

I'll give it a try though
Thx a lot
