strace the hanging linux process to see if it always happens on a particular file or syscall, and run tcpdump/wireshark to see what NFS requests are being done. Also check dmesg or /var/log/messages on the client to see if it's reporting something there. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
