clients with many requests hang as XWin stops serving them
Tue Dec 28 16:19:00 GMT 2004
I am using XWin 126.96.36.199-8 on an XP laptop as an X-Terminal of a Linux
machine. The machines are connected over IPSec encrypted wireless.
On the XP machine, I start X with X -query linuxserver and can log in
The wireless connection is excellent. A contiuous ping shows very few
errors (about 1 in 30 minutes).
However, x clients hang frequently and can only be removed using
xkill. There seems to be some correlation between client activity and
probability of hanging. 'ico' hangs reproducably after 1-5 minutes,
xterm hangs less often but is still a pain to work with.
netstat -n --protocol=inet (on the linux machine) shows a connection
with a suspiciously full send queue, which is disconnected after
Active Internet connections (w/o servers)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State
tcp 0 64440 192.168.0.100:36779 192.168.0.129:6000 ESTABLISHED
Using ssh -X from a (XP-)local xterm does not help:
192.168.0.129:> ssh -X firstname.lastname@example.org
<hangs after a couple of minutes>
What am I doing wrong?
