I've acquired a previously used mail address which is included in the
distribution for this mail list "linux-tulip=bug@cesdis1.gsfc.nasa.gov".
Not that I don't enjoy reading about ethernet cards and such , but, can
anyone help me get off this maillist ?

} Are you saying that you're seeing this problem after the card has been
} operating for a while 

That's correct.

>                  (as distinct from my problem with initial ARPs, OTOH
} I suppose your problem could be with ARPs associated with existing ARP
} entries expiring?)?

As far as I know, ARPs aren't specifically involved in the problem
we're seeing.  It occurs during the FTP'ing of multi-megabyte files,
over a fairly busy network.

} "almost"?  That's somewhat unsettling as my machine in question is to be a
} proxy server routinely moving >1GB/day and supposedly without hiccup. {:-(

I say "almost" only because I can't say for certain that we have _no_
collisions at all.  I don't know the conditions under which a good
switch (e.g. Cisco) ever causes a collision in full-duplex mode...
perhaps this is actually impossible?
