Rsync access through NAT?

Hi again,

To the list: for some time now, I've had problems accessing from my PPC machines (I've noticed it with rsync... for
www I use a proxy on i386).

Turns out the problem only occurs with 2.4 kernels:

[mlan at piglet ~]$ uname -a
Linux piglet 2.4.3-pre3 #4 Thu Apr 12 01:47:59 CEST 2001 ppc unknown
(benh's tree)

and 2.4.4-pre1 from benh on the TiBook.

Anyone else seen this? Note, with a 2.2 kernel, all is OK. I've not had
a chance to test a 2.4 kernel on i386 to see whether it's the same over

I hope it doesn't matter, but I'm accessing the net through a NAT router
(which is configured OK, thanks for asking ;-)
