Seem to have another problem. I started about 50 HP-UX workstations
on the attack last night, and around 2am they all stopped working
(or so it appears in the logs). My machines at home are working fine.
Both the Linux and HP-UX machines stopped.

It is as though I'm not getting responses, although I get ping's, from
the server. I can get through (on the same port) to my network at home,
so I am making it through the firewall.

Here's a tcpdump from the node inflexible.sw.bcd.adc.com:

Any ideas?
