Hello Everyone,

Recently I upgraded to freebsd 7.0-p3 from 7.0-p2, once i upgraded i began
to have problems with my network, nothing has changed configuration wise,
let me show you guy's an example.

(12:46 AM)root@cube)/$ ping google.com
PING google.com (72.14.207.99): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 72.14.207.99: icmp_seq=0 ttl=240 time=64.713 ms

(12:46 AM)root@cube)/$ ping google.com

(12:46 AM)root@cube)/$


As you can see above, I issued the ping command (4) times waiting for output
and then doing CTRL+C to interrupt the commands quickly and send them again
on the 4th try i did not intterupt it and received the operation not
permitted. hitting ctrl+c on this error I can type ping again and it will
work correctly.


I have the same problem with almost every network command, wget, curl,
fetch, lynx, ssh, nslookup, host etc.



This appears to be an issue with the network.

I have attached my rc.conf and sysctl.conf and pf.conf please let me know if
any other information is required.


Errors from /var/log/console.log:

Jul 18 21:10:02 cube kernel: Jul 18 21:10:02 cube named[908]: socket: too
many open file descriptors
Jul 19 00:30:13 cube kernel: Jul 19 00:30:13 cube named[9748]: socket: too
many open file descriptors
Jul 19 00:30:54 cube kernel: Jul 19 00:30:14 cube last message repeated 28
times



Initially I figured this problem was bind related and since it has been a
planned project for the past few months to switch to djbdns, I took the time
to switch to djbdns, so bind is no longer running.

I was also receiving this in /var/log/messages:

After spending some time on Google i came up with:

/etc/sysctl.conf
net.inet.icmp.icmplim=2000

I know it seems abit high, but i kept adjusting until the error went away.
(not really fixing the problem?)

PS: While running tcpdump I see this

tcpdump -i fxp0

Neither one of these ip's exist on my system is my cable company doing
something wrong?

Is this an attack?
