 Subject:  Problems with 1.2b9 and 1.2 Release
 Date:  Fri, 21 Oct 2005 08:54:31 -0400
Just a heads up.  I was on vacation for the past two weeks and was previously running 1.2b8.  I
upgraded to 1.2b9 the day before I left.  As soon as I left town the hotspot went down.  When I
returned I put on the 1.2 release.

Symptoms:
About every 20 to 25 minutes the external interface transitions to down and then the internal
interface follows making the firewall completely inaccessible.

I am currently downgrading to previous releases to see if I can resolve the problem between outages.

status.php is pretty much useless since it is reset every time I cold boot the firewall and fails to
show any signs of anything wrong.

I am currently using the generic images as this system runs on a Mini-ITX with two ethernet
interfaces.  I am not ruling out hardware failure at this point but this could also be happening.

Once I get a more thorough assessment made I will post my results.

Regards,
David
