Currently Being ModeratedJan 28, 2006 7:02 PM (in response to D Little)This sounds like a basic network connectivity issue, not something particular to Mac OS X Server.
When the ssh session hangs, can you still ping the server (in a separate terminal session)? Are the ping times consistent?
If the pings stop, too, then there's something on the network that's causing a problem. Are there other hosts in the same LAN as the server that you can ping? Do they exhibit the same problem?Mac OS X (10.4.4)
Currently Being ModeratedJan 28, 2006 10:04 PM (in response to Camelot)Yes, I can ping the server from a seperate session when it happens. A bit more info...
My server is at another location behind a NAT router with DMZ enabled to the server. All other machines are off at the time. At my end, I'm on a Powerbook, also behind a NAT router. At both ends, the network connectivity seems to be running fine.
This issue does not happen when I am at the server's location on the same subnet. Also, when it does happen, it always is when I have paused activity for several seconds (like when reading something) or when I take the focus off the terminal session window. I can actually recreate the problem by doing one of these two things.
Thanks for your help!
