I've had the same problem, but with x86 systems (specifically an IBM xSeries system and a home-built AMD64 system) running FreeBSD 6.0 (IIRC). These systems were on a home cable modem connection and there were pretty regular break-in attempts. When reviewing logs, I'd see attempts to brute-force logins and passwords for the ftp and ssh services. I eventually had to turn ftpd off since it seemed guaranteed to panic the box during one of these cracking attempts. sshd seemed to handle things better, but I have had one panic occur. I haven't tried 6.2 to see if I encounter similar problems. -Damian _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
