There could be a number of reasons why the 'connection is
lost'. Starting point would be - is it happening on
particular machines, or every one, that is can you change
the routing and get a different result.

You may doubt it, but don't rule it out. If it is a new
configuration, then are the routers set up, how do you get
from A to B, and as I said above - is it location specific.

Not using British Telecom was one of our solutions, THEY
guaranteed network availability - but forgot to set up the
routers! I had made a LOT of code changes before BT accepted
that it was their problem, so I would suggest that you
eliminate the obviously correct before going for the obscure <g>
