Just like Ralph and Rania, I am also in trouble that cause " TCP
Conection failures".
But our squids run on AIX 4.2.1 machines. After connection fail, 1 or 2
minuites later, connection succeed again. That occurs 3 or 4 times in
ONE hour on
each machine both to siblings and a parent.

We don't have any linux system. There are 3 proxy servers squid
and parent cache(squid) runs on the firewall. All are AIX machines.
Does anyone have any hint to solve this problem?
Thanks a lot in advance! I'm waiting for your suggestions.
