Issue with dropped packets and request time outs to remote sites
Posted on 2011-03-21
I am having an ongoing issue with my remote site losing connectivity to my cooprate office. The sites are connected via a VPN tunnel using 2 Edgemarc routers. I have been trying to drill down on the cause of the issue but have been unsuccesful so far.
I decided to give Wireshark a try and see what it said about my issue. During a file copy/ping -t from Site A to Site B I noticed a bunch of ICMP messages saying ICMP Redirect (Redirect for host). The redirect is occuring from Source (192.168.10.1) and destination (192.168.10.3). I find it odd that there is an ICMP Redirect occurding within the same subnet, not sure if this is what I should be seeing or not.
There are also a bunch of Write AndX request yellow and red/black bars with TCP out of order errors. I'm new to viewing this data, so if there is anything I should be looking for in particular to futher troubleshoot this, any guidance is appreciated!
