SCO Unix connectivity: Internet access via cable modem dropping
Posted on 2002-04-08
Hi, not sure if this is right forum area for this but maybe someone can help or point me in the right forum direction:
I am working from home & connecting to a SCO unix server at work via my NTL cable modem, ie over the internet & I am using a VPN.
I don't have any trouble with any of the servers except one which insists on dropping my connection every time there is a pause in the network. I have asked the techies at work to identify any timeouts set on the server but they don't know what they are looking for and are at a loss to help. Waste of space actually.
Symptoms: All pc apps freeze for a short while (about 15-30secs) every so often at which time the sco box drops my connection. All other servers, including another sco box do not.
Anyone know what to look for so I can tell them in the office. It's driving me crazy because as sods law would have it, it is the main server I use.
