Re: ping -b => DUP !


Finaly I could reproduce the problem with only one MCM connected.

ping -b
WARNING: pinging broadcast address
PING ( from : 56(84) bytes of data.
Warning: time of day goes back, taking countermeasures.
64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=255 time=88 usec
64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=64 time=591 usec (DUP!)
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=255 time=44 usec
64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=255 time=47 usec
64 bytes from icmp_seq=3 ttl=255 time=47 usec
64 bytes from icmp_seq=4 ttl=255 time=52 usec

I seems that the network interface crashed. The MCM can not be reach
by the network anymore (WEB, telnet, ping ).

But we can acces by the debug port. It seems to work normaly. I run
ifconfig and here is the result.

We have duplicated packets when we use the command :
           ping -b broadcast_adrress.

We send this command from a PC under linux with two network 
(eth1 /eth0).
Only one MCM 2+8 is connected to eth1.

What this DUP ! messages mean ? (see attached file)

You get multiple responses for each ping, the MCM (
and what I assume is eth1 on your linux PC ( both
respond (as they should do).  The ping application warns about
received duplicates even if they come from different destinations.
It is harmless, as it was a broadcast ping.
The messages are correct if we use the ping directly to the MCM.

Also if we try ping -b with fewer MCMs on the same network 
the MCMs become
unreachable !

That sounds bad.  Unreachable how, the devices crash, become
unresponsive on the network, or something else?  And what do you
mean with 'fewer MCMs on the same network', you only mentioned
one MCM above?  You haven't accidentally configured the same
address on several MCMs?
