Re: Linux <-> Apple Laser 16/600 [TCP problems??]

Since upgrading to 2.0.1 from 1.3.5x (Yeah I missed a huge gad of devl.
stuff) the networking has gone completly south. My understanding of 2.0
was improved networking, not worse networking!

I recently posted a message to comp.os.linux.networking and hope to hear
back from someone there, regarding my troubles. In a nutshell, tcp
connections hang and then die after an initial amount of data is passed
through the connection. I have fiddled with MTU settings, nothing has
improved the situation.

Any clues?
