And now, the continuation of our ongoing "IA-1 Firewall" story....
Ok, kernel is happy, boots fine, bring up NAT great, life is good. Except for the fact that I think I'm overloading the USB hub.
I've got 2 LinkSys USB100TX adapters plugged in, plus the mouse, boot and everything works fine. I start transfering a large file to a machine inside the NAT domain, and about 6-8 megs into it, going at 100-150kbps (just pulling the 2.4.18 kernel right now), the transfer stalls, and I lose all network connectivity. On the IA-1, the USB hub seems to go dead. No mouse, no ethernet adapters, no nothing. I reboot, it works fine, try the test again, same issue. Tried without the mouse, no luck.
Could it be that 2 network adapters is too much for the IA-1?
