One and a half days later, I am again unable to stop, restart or kill Zope. My ISP host is making changes on their network and I believe the problem is with them. I am in a FreeBSD jail, sharing the machine with a DNS server. It's 3am over there, and I wish I could do something while waiting for them to wake up. Then, we need to find out what is causing this problem.
Andreas, I figured out that the netstat -p option required a protocol argument. So, 'netstat -anp TCP' gives me a very long list of IPs trying to connect. It does not display the pid of the hanging process, maybe some other option would do, but the problem seems to be a python2.3 process stuck in STOP state. I can't kill it, and I can't even restart the machine with the shutdown command. Is there no alternative to physically restarting this machine? While we are stuck, is there anything I can do to diagnose the problem?
