Thanks to Jim, Theune, Dieter and all others who weighed in on this thread.
The problem: ZEO Clients would lock up randomly requiring restart. The hints: Lots of 'Connection timed out' and 'No route to host' in ZEO Server log files. The solution: The machine the ZEO server was running iptables. Even though it was allowing the zeo server port 8100; it was filtering on all interfaces. I simply changed rules so port 8100 would not filter the internal network interface - at all. ZEO listens specifically on internal ip/port 8100. System has been stable for several days; without zeo server logs containing any connection errors. I had never had this problem before because.. well.. we use firewalls on our customers (external interfaces and our internal interfaces never have filtering) and this particular sysadmin was running iptables on all public/private interfaces; locking the machine down as much as possible.
