Subject firebird hangs when connecting through ipsec/openvpn
Author mariusgresko

I have a very strange behaviour.
FirebirdSS- on Fedora Core 5
behind an OpenBSD router.

When I connect (using a BDE Delphi Application or BDE DB Explorer or
EMS SQL Manager) from outside of the network through an IPSEC link or
OpenVPN link (created between WindowsXP and the OpenBSD router) the
firebird server hangs without any entry in the logfile. it must be
killed, and can not be stopped with fbmgr.

It is not allways the case, but it hangs only while connecting through
an encrypted connection.

Has somebody any Idea what could be the problem?
