I tried UDP and have the same problem unfortunately. I am not sure what
the default is, UDP or TCP.
I have another clue, though. This server works fine with Linux clients
and Sol 10 clients, but is broken with Sol 9 clients, SPARC and x86. Is
there possibly a daemon that I have neglected to start that could cause
I don't think it is DNS-related at all; mounting with the IP address
instead of the name causes the same thing.
Running ethereal shows a problem 'ls' generating a "READDIRPLUS" request
that a working response does not have. After that I get fragmented UDP
packets, duplicates and retransmissions. But a sniff of an sftp session
shows no such errors.
