Multiwan Down -Only one Connection- Works Sporadically

multiwan

(Vinit Makol) #1

Setup:

3 inbound Internet connections setup in ‘Balance’ mode(50, 30, 20) with One static and two DHCP.

Everything has been working fine for over a month now in this mode until this morning when two of the links were showing as ‘DOWN’. I was curious and decided to check the connections by connecting them directly to a computer, and the connection was up. Same with the other one.

I tried doing some troubleshooting by ‘Releasing Role’ on the two that were not working. I get the following error when I try to do that.

Task completed with errors
Template /¦ #69 (exit status 1)
expansion of /¦ failed

As of now only one connection is up and internet is sporadic (30 secs on and 20 seconds off).

–Tried re-installing Firewall and still the same symptoms…

Getting lots of martian packets
Ntop misterious traffic
(bob) #2

Sorry, I don’t know what might be causing your problem. But…are you using a virtualised system? If so, what VM platform are you using and what NIC drivers is your NethServer using?

(I’m having problems of martian packets on a virtualised NethServer that using Omnios & KVM with virtio NICs).

Thanks
Bob

I am not using anything Virtualized. Its all on a pretty decent physical server.

Looking at a recurrent IP address I suspect a malware attack or infection.
You can check active processes, opened connections, logs and evebox/IPS for suspicious activity.

Below are the processes. I don’t see anything out of the ordinary in the log files.

(Vinit Makol) #9

Problem isolated. We were able to replicate the issue using ClearOS as well. We then decided to troubleshoot the issue by process of elimination by removing one switch at a time from the network. Once we identified the switch, we were able to narrow it down to a RHAT server, provided by Oracle Corp.
We were using it to test their new application development tool.
I am suspecting malware but we haven’t looked into it yet. I am glad to post that its nothing to do with NS, and the problem is isolated.
