Re: (ITS#6320)


Yes, that has been a theory of mine - I am investigating the =20
possibility, however I should point out that we recently =20
decommissioned our old LDAP system, which used slapd on Etch - it uses =20=

the same firewalls for out-of-zone-access, and was not affected by =20
this problem.

However, I should also point out that since my last update, the =20
problem has not returned. Using a six-member multimaster mesh has =20
proven fruitful so far, but we'll see how it plays out over the next =20
couple of days.

Thanks for your help ...
