What means that it randomly hangs on networking? These computers lost network connectivity? They are really hanged? Are these computers detecting a lost of the ethernet link signal? Or a lost of the TCP session?<P>I recommend you to add the last recommended patches for your OS release. Perhaps network connectivity is lost under high network load.<BR>Check too <A HREF="http://sunsolve.sun.com/" TARGET=_blank>http://sunsolve.sun.com/</A> for updated information about your OS release (I am not sure about it, perhaps a better place to look for information related with Solaris in FSC servers is available in <A HREF="http://its.sni.de/)." TARGET=_blank>http://its.sni.de/).</A> <P>You can try the next shell script to recover network connectivity (perhaps it will work, but perhaps not). I wrote it to recover network connectivity on my laptop after hibernation and it works just fine here.<P><-- shell script begins here --><BR>#!/bin/sh<BR>#<BR># Copyright (c) 2001 Igor Sobrado.<BR>#<BR># Redistribution and use in source and binary forms, with or without<BR># modification, are permitted provided that the following conditions<BR># are met:<BR>#<BR># 1.
