MS Outlook intermittent connection

Hi,

I have a FC5 acting as a gateway (has ip tables,bind and squid) which has been running for 4 months with no problem, suddenly this week MS Outlook is having problem connecting to the mail server. I have trace the problem to the FC5 which is blocking/dropping the connection intermittently.

How can we troubleshoot what's happening o nthe FC5 ?


Thanks!

Check the logs, see if there is some process sucking up too much resources.

Also check for hardware failures.
