    Does this only occur when you try sending large file?
    what software are you using to send those files?
    do you get the same behavior receiveing?

    Exept for your felnex, can you post your network config as well as your distro, kernel...

    Thanks in advance

    Details abt network card

    Hi! Happy New Year !!

    I observed that the message echos itself nearly when memory uses are high. This is p4 machine, with Fedora3 and Oracle 9i installed. Kernel version is 2.6.9

    Output of ifconfig:

    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:40:95:00:08:88
    inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
    inet6 addr: fe80::240:95ff:fe00:888/64 Scope:Link
    RX packets:2076080 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
    TX packets:1919202 errors:1559 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

    I am really confused why this problem is occuring!! Thanks in advance!!
