Performa 5200CD; Debian 3.1; kernel 2.4.30 3/15/06
from :pserver:anonymous@...:/cvsroot/nubus-pmac with
kernel-patch-openswan 2.2.0-8 via MkLinux booter
eth0: Asante MacCon CS-10T slot C mac9194 driver
eth1: TFL LAN INC. E420 LC PDS Ethernet Adapter slot E mac8390 driver
eth1 -> wired LAN port -> D-Link WBR-1310 wireless router -> AirPort
802.11b card -> 733MHz G4 Quicksilver Mac OS X 10.4.6
I'm using the Performa as a VPN server to protect my internal network
from the wardrivers. I leave it on almost all the time. I shut down
the G4 almost every night. Sometimes I can't access eth1 from the
G4, usually when I first turn on the G4 for the day. If I set up a
ping on the G4 and tcpdump on eth1 I see a few packets come through
for about a second every minute. Is the 8390 network card sleeping?
How do I turn that off? Can you suggest additional diagnostic tests?
I can fix the problem temporarily by rebooting the wireless router,
which at first made me think it could be a router problem, but it
doesn't seem to matter which LAN port I plug into. I can get to the
router's administrative interface from the G4, so the wireless is
OK. I can also fire up mozilla on the Performa (lynx doesn't work)
and get to the router's administrative interface, which sometimes
fixes the problem without rebooting the router.
