sorry if this doesn't make much sense, but I'm not
too sure what I'm talking about .... ;-\
Kubuntu 7.04, fully up-to-date, 2.6.<2<something>>,
with one (1) ethernet interface.
the site sysadmin tells me the firewall (entering the
DMZ, I presume) keeps complaining my workstation sends
too many packets (TCP, I presume) without waiting for
an ACK(?). "too many" is somewhere north of c.250,
which is the firewall's limit.
does this make sense?
perhaps rather more importantly, is there something
I can set/tune/adjust to keep the maximum number of
outstanding un-ACKed packets (or whatever) below a
finally (this is mostly for my curiosity), is it
possible to do so only for stuff routed into (or
through) the DMZ? i.e., for stuff which stays on
the local intranet, everything seems to be working
fine, so is it possible to not change the current
behaviour (albeit the change is presumably benign?).
