Has anyone else out there in INNOPAC land ever experienced intermittant dropping of telnet sessions? Actually, in our case it is not exactly intermittant, it is every Saturday morning between 8 AM and approximately 1 PM ; random times on Sundays; and though it has not ever failed on a Monday before, yesterday (Labor Day) it did.
Our server is in the largest of 10 connected consortium libraries.
The other libraries are connected to it via Frame-Relay T-1
Each library is on it's own subnet.
The carrier for the T-1s stress tested one of the circuits at the time it was failing and found no abnormalities.
This problem does not affect the library where the server is located. (same subnet)
Traffic to the OPAC/WebOPAC is not affected.
We have a caching DNS server to which INNOPAC points. The problem was there before this server was installed, and didn't go away after it was installed.
It SEEMS like the problem should be in the common connection between the server and the 'remote' locations, but all other services pass through normally (http, ftp, etc). But only on weekends? And now holidays as well. I'm stumped.
