I'm running rh6.2 with ns4.76 all fine...
our internet connection is over a 64k leased line and the firewall is
NAT on a freebsd3.x box (quite a little box p1-133?).
if i connect to mail.yahoo.com from my linux box and try to read my mail
online, it stalls when i try to open an individual mail...
now the fun part... on thursday our internet connection went down
(eircom cabling prob) and we reverted to using a 56k modem from a
different freebsd3.x box (p2-450?) and surprise surprise the internet
connection was perceived as _much_ faster and i was able to read my
yahoo mail no problem - no stalling whatsoever (this box also has squid
installed properly which the other doesn't)
we've gone back to our leased line now that its fixed and the stalling
problem is back...
any thoughts on why the connection is stalling?
