Outbound packets...

    I have this odd issue that has been happening the past month...I run ispconfig 2.2.6 on a SUSE 9.3 build. in the last month our other computers on the same modem will stop surfing...after working with our cable company we found that it was our ISPConfig server was sending a constant upstream of packet causing our connection to almost stop working for all (including the server).

    So when this happens about every 18-36hours i reboot the server and it is all good....now when this does happen i can on the server go to terminal run TOP and see the only things running are httpd2-prefork, and sometimes a php but usually only with both those running about a total for 4-6 active processes. I average about 130-149 processes total again with 4-6 active and sometimes 1 zombie.

    I have my suse9.3 up to date with all the patches, I run clamscan dailey..though lately it is SLOW and does not always finish.
    I run rootkit checker and nothing is off.

    my cron emails me a lot of these daily
    Can't open perl script "/tmp/.tmp/tmpfile": No such file or directory
    LibClamAV Error: cli_readn: read error: Invalid argument
    Any ideas???

    Seems to be a ClamAV problem. Did you update ClamAV to the latest version?

    It is about .1 version off...didn't now how to manually update it other than freshclam and that just does the defs file.

    All day yesterday i was connected to the server via my Mac through terminal monitoring top...after a day of being connected to it like that..when i disconnected with in about 20 mins the server slowed my whole network down again and had to be rebooted.

    I will look into updating clamav on their site, unless there is a different way being it was installed with the ispconfig package.

    Is there a certin way to preform the update for the whole clamav program?
