Debian: No ipv4 connection within Java applications

Recently there is a very annoying setting within debian squeeze. It causes many java applications to not function anymore on ipv4. Basically this means a lot of programs like Eclipse and Netbeans won’t function at all when requiring a connection.


OSX and Linux NFS shares

At work we had this odd problem of OSX (Leopard) clients disconnecting from our NFS file shares. The problem occurred when the clients opened the index of their mounted location. At this point the whole finder (OSX file browser) disconnected and reported “Connection interrupted”. However, the users were able to open child folders directly (e.g. /mount/folder/) which eventually made their work little bit possible, but usually within minutes they got disconnected again while doing copy jobs and such.
