I had some incomplete pages, missing images, and no loads via Firefox on
Linux, but no issues running mtr/links from the Linux box or the BSD shell.
Most failures were on re-directions to other servers and sub-domains and at
least one java load. No problems noted with several searches from XP Pro
box on IE, including spawning new windows on selected items. There are a
lot of combinations/permutations to test.
No kidding. I noticed on the first quick test that the server ignored the first
several sackOK connection packets, which with linux was a sure bet it wouldn't
connect. So I posted the first message that Win2K failed the connect. The interesting
part was it actually recovered, and didn't fail after that. IE and mozilla definately
have different failure recovery algorithms.
I will have to take a windows machine tonight/tomarrow and walk my class C with
it to really test. I will also take a 2.2 or 2.4 kernel, which has different
network stacks and do the same.
One thing about this thing being flakey, is that the time stamp bits change, making
every thing a moving target when suspecting something as trivial as a checksum/crc
I've hand validated several of the connection packets, and don't see anything wrong.
