Description Paul D Gilligan 2000-11-12 16:03:03 UTC
Running base installation of Redhat 7 on Dell PowerEdge 2450.

When binding more than one IP address to the internal Dell Network card
and using that network interface(through say telnet to another machine)
the system hangs.

On solution power down!

I have tested just the one IP address on the internal card and no problems.
Also tested a 3COM card in the system an bound many addresses with no

This smells like a problem with the driver for your internal network card.

What driver are you using?

Comment 2 Paul D Gilligan 2000-12-31 08:24:29 UTC
The driver would be the default picked up
by the installation when installing the Dell
2450. I had not the time to investigate any
special work arounds - just a straight out of
the box installation.

The 2450 has an Integrated Intel Pro/100+

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
