Hi Todd, Yes, the problem seems always to happen when a daily cron setup
does a backup and about 30GB of data crosses the NSF hookup. He also has 2
other computers connected to the main but they are for password lookup so
as to have just 1 password for all 3 computers.
I can send you a description of the whole thing if it would help.
