Description Peter Bowen 2003-02-21 02:14:43 UTC
When a machine suspends it will, by default, run '/sbin/service network stop'. 
Unfortunately on resume it doesn't reset several setting that are changed when
network stop is called, including:

/proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_always_defrag and /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward are set to

ipx is deleted

ipv6 is stopped

the apm scripts should handle networking more gracefully.
