"Unusually high router traffice... No/Slow internet access"
Posted on 2005-04-13
Okay, my knowledge is limited so bear with me...
Our network runs off of two servers, server1 is the domain controller (W2K) running dhcp etc..., and server2 is
W2K3 server running citrix terminal services for our remote offices.
All machines/servers are plugged into two Linksys unmanaged switches, which are then plugged into a Cisco router
(the router is Comcasts, and is our gateway). Everything was fine until last Wed. when we suddenly began having
internet connection problems, the connection usually didn't work, and when it did it was extremely slow...
After checking lines, swapping routers etc... Comcast came to the conclusion that it was our network.
Too much traffic coming into our network via certain ports?!? (1483,1493,1494,1314,4214,1031)
I know that 1494 was opened up for our Citrix users, and 1604 was pointed to our static ip, aside from that
I don't know where to go from here to verify or dispute their claim. I think they're just passing the buck,
but I can't say for sure, and since I can't refute it, they won't do anything more for us...
Can someone help. Until we get this fixed, we have 3 remote offices w/people doing crosswords...
