I found this searching google and then purchased a "trial" membership for this site, because we are experiencing the same issue. After my purchase and subsequent login to have the answer revealed, there was no answer to this question.
If anyone has any suggestions or areas to check, any info would be appreciated.
Recently, I can not ssh to my remote servers or vnc to the boxes.
When I do a ssh command it will hang and can not get a the connection to a remote server.

If I reboot the remote server everything will work normally for a few days and same problem
