Are you tired of coming back to your computer only to find your SSH connections have been broken? Even worse are the ones that hang where it appears to be connected but it is really not.
The one option you have is an SSHclient side modification to send KeepAlive packets, sometimes this can also keep up your WiFi connection and stop it from disconnecting you as well.
To make the keep alive changes for your just yourself (not system wide)........
iw dev wlan0 station dump
This is very useful because it is helpful if you are running something like hostapd and need to see the signal strength and negotiated connection speed.
Station ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff (on wlan0)

A lot of people just have a -j DROP to drop all unwanted traffic or traffic not explicitly allowed but there is a better solution if you want real and proper logging:
Take an example iptables rules file
-A INPUT -m state --state RELATED,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -i eth1 -p icmp -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -i lo -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -i eth1 -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -j LOGGING
-A LOGGING -j LOG --log-pre........
Sometimes if you have a very basic configuration OpenVPN on the client side for some reason sends all traffic to the OpenVPN server IP through the tun0 which is of course impossible and creates a block or routing loop.
This is because you need to use your normal ISP/LANgateway to hit the OpenVPN server if it is remote/offsite as is usually the case. So if you are connected to the OpenVPN through say a tun0 device and your routing is set to connect to the OpenVPN&nbs........

Some say changing the "leftprotoport=17/%any" will fix this but I have not found this to be the case.
Essentially it means at least one end is blocking the ipsec packets. Sometimes the %any allows an alt........

I wanted to use Astrachat because it seems to be the only app that has video, pic and file sharing for Jabber butI cannot even connect despite any other client working fine including Xabber and others.
astrachat "Oops.. We can't connect to the account that you provide above. Please recheck your account detail".
Unfortunately to make it worse there doesn't seem to be any error log or more details about the issue.
This is a real pain because I had to manually unplug ethernet cables for network testing or to use an alternate network or guarantee physical access to one network segment is cut off.
For some reason this happened after Ikilled dbus because it was confused and blocking packets thinking they were coming from the wrong interface since eth0 and eth1 both had the same subnet and gateway.
I eventually did a "service network-manager restart" but the option was........
It sounds like this is corrected in later versions of the OpenVZ kernel but Iam not sure, it may also be that a much newer kernel is needed and Centos may not have a recent enough kernel.
*Debain 7.0 however does work fine as a temporary fix or work around.
Debian 8 OpenVZ no IP and networking not working:
lo Link encap:Local Loopback
If you move your hard drive(s) around to other computers/servers, you'll find that your eth0 keeps getting higher, the first time it will become eth1 and then eth2 etc and even higher if your server has dual or quad NICs. The reason is that udevd basically assigns eth0 tot he first NIC it finds and remembers it, if it encounters a NIC with a differentMAC, it assigns it one higher (eg. eth1).
See the example below, I have eth2 now so how doI fix it?........
ip_conntrack: table full, dropping packet.
A lot of clients I've seen have this issue, it really seems the default level is way too small. Once this connection tracking table becomes full then packets get dropped which is obviously a bad thing.
One thing to be mindful of though is that 350 bytes of memory are used per entry so there is some justification for not keeping it too high. However, if you have multiple servers running or high traffic daemons........
I've encountered this problem before and I believe it may affect other drivers (I could test but I don't have time). This was happening on my custom Linux system with the pcnet32 driver.
pcnet32: eth0: transmit timed out, status 97fb, resetting (and some other kernel module tracing in dmesg)
Basically it means the card is connected (it shows connected in full duplex etc.. and recognized if the cable is disconnected too) but no packets can be sent or received........
Telus + 2Wire 2700 Router HorribleWell first of all let me say this is the only router/switch that sometimes seems to crash/disconnect computers on the local network.
This device also thought it would be smart to block VOIP packets coming from my Sipura ATA VOIP adapters so I disabled the [quote:cb89ba7bff]"Invalid TCP Flag Attacks (NULL/XMAS/Other)"[/quote:cb89ba7bff] option
Then all of a sudden I couldn't get onto any web pages, the wireless........
