I have a LAN, with two switches in a stack. There currently are 7
WinXP clients and one linux machine. The linux machine acts as a samba
server and as a firewall/gateway.
The two ports of the PRO/1000 in the linux box are connected to the
LAN (eth4) and to a Comcast modem (eth3) respectively. Shorewall 3.4.5
is running on the linux machine, with a strong firewall + NAT setup.
Further, the linux machine currently has a tap device bridged into the
LAN side, for virtualbox.
Therefore, eth3 is a plain ethernet interface. br0, on the lan side,
is tap0 + eth4.
If I get any client on the LAN side, I can read from the linux box
without a problem. However, if I attempt to write to the linux box
from a LANside client, it will fail. If traffic is low, the failures
are sporadic. If traffic is high (large file and/or multiple incoming
files) the failure is guaranteed, either in 'delayed write fail' mode
on the client or in silent corruption of the file (much worse). If
read/write activity is combined, for instance when I unzip a zip
archive to its own directory, failure is guaranteed and rapid, with a
'delayed write fail' on the client after 50MB or so.
I can post .config and anything else you may want if you require it. I
tried changing cable as you suggested with little success. I'll try
changing switch port, just to cover all bases.
