Description kgb 1999-07-06 20:15:03 UTC
Hi,

I am experiencing problems with DHCP networking after
upgrading
to RH 6.0 - the speed to local machines appears very slow
and
intermittent. e.g. doing an 'ftp' and a 'ls' seems to hang
on long directory listings. Looks like some kind of timeout
problem.

Turning off dhcp and hardwiring addresses completely cures
the problem so it
seems pump is too blame.

I tried installing all the networking related errata but
this did
not cure the problem.

Anyway I thought I would report this, though I would not be
surprised
if this is not the first...

Dr Karl Glazebrook

Comment 1 David Lawrence 1999-07-07 18:07:59 UTC
We have not been able to reproduce this in our test lab. Also we use
pump and dhcp on most of our internal workstations and have not seen
any slowdown caused by it.

Comment 2 Michael McConachie 1999-07-20 18:36:59 UTC
I had the same problem with the dialup to my ISP.  The fix (in my
case, anyway) was to use the new version of pump and to alias the
compression modules in /etc/conf.modules.

alias ppp-compress-21 bsd_comp
alias ppp-compress-26 ppp_deflate
alias ppp-compress-24 ppp_deflate

I went from an average of 5 min logins to my isp not being happy. ;)
