    Greetings.

    I'm having a slight issue with some NFS file transfers.

    Configuration is like this:

    MACHINEA --> CISCO3600 --> SWITCH --> MACHINEB

    I also have a configuration like this:

    MACHINEA --> SWITCH (same one as abonve) --> MACHINEB

    On the second configuration my NFS works fine.. however in the first
    configuration it will start to work fine and then after running for
    maybe 25 minutes (it's used for backups on some linux server) it will
    just die with messages:

    NFS server at xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is not responding.
    Retrying: OK
    NFS server at xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is not responding.
    Retrying: OK
    NFS server at xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is not responding.
    Retrying: OK
    NFS server at xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is not responding.
    Retrying: OK

    And the backup will die.

    Router configs for the two interfaces look like:

    interface FastEthernet0/0
    description Interconnect with 3024 Dell Primary Switch for the 63.174
    block
    ip address 63.174.xxx.xxx 255.255.255.0
    no ip redirects
    no ip unreachables
    duplex auto
    speed auto
    arp timeout 1800


    and

    interface FastEthernet1/1
    description Wireless / Highspeed Interface
    ip address 65.173.xxx.xxx 255.255.255.0
    no ip redirects
    no ip unreachables
    duplex auto
    speed auto
    arp timeout 1800

    Does anyone have any ideas why this would be happening?

  2. Don't use auto duplex or auto for the speed. Almost certainly the cause.

    kind regards,
