    Xuefer - 2007-02-19

    version: colinux 0.7.1
    os: gentoo
    networking: either pcap-bridge or tuntap
    connection:

    ADSL-eth0 -> pppoe -- xp connection share -> xp bridge { lan-eth1, lo, coeth1 }

    both ADSL-eth0 and lan-eth1 is eth card
    ADSL-eth0 is connected with modem while lan-eth1 is connected with another box
    coeth1 is a tap device
    i can use pcap-bridge on xpbridge, or tuntap on coeth1

    problem:
    ssh to my server and it will get connection lost after some minutes randomly, this does not happen on cygwin ssh neither ssh to colinux nor to remote server

    any idea?

      this might be related to a checksum issue in the network stack:

      try to disable IP-checksum offloading (hardware->network->yourCard(Intel PRO/1000 or so)->advanced

      hope this helps
