I have a question about the loopback interface found on our Sun
workstations. Our problem is that when we do a netstat -a, a bunch of the
following connections are formed (ie. dozens):
Active connections (including servers)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address (state)
tcp 0 0 loopback.2703 loopback.sunrpc TIME_WAIT
tcp 0 0 loopback.2702 loopback.sunrpc TIME_WAIT
tcp 0 0 loopback.2701 loopback.sunrpc TIME_WAIT
These go away after awhile, but we can't figure out why they should be
there in the first place. Here is our entry for loopback:
127.0.0.1 loopback lb localhost loghost datehost
Here's some more funny stuff. One another Sun we have an entry of:
127.0.0.1 loghost me loopback localhost
and there's no loopback connections created during a netstat -a! What
could be the difference?
We are running Sun OS 3.3 on our 'problem' Sun, and 3.4 on our 'good' Sun.
Thanks in advance.
