Hi! Did anyone encountered some ssl transaction problems with latest 
version of ixgbe? i had some very strange problem with nodes with 
private ip (the server with 10 gb interface was masquerading the nodes 
behind a switch with 10gb and 1 gb interfaces)
i used the latest drivers and the ssl conection could be made .. as soon 
as i used the 2.6.18-308.8.1.el5 driver (3.4.8-k) the problem vanished...
What am i missing? how can a network driver have effect on ssl transactions?

Thank you for any info ..i feel like in twilight zone :(
