|Summary||0000944: VMWare network emulation (pcnet32) problem|
I can only reproduce this problem when using EFW in a VMWare Virtual Machine.
It looks like I'm loosing connectivity. I have to tweak VMWare ESX VM priority to reduce Interrupt maximum delay and increase the VM priority. Even f I'm doing this, I found that I needed to run a permanent ping to the default gateway in order to maintain active the the RED link. Finally, even if I'm doing all of this, if I connect using OpenVPN, the connection to the GREEN interface doesn't work. The OpenVPN client can only access the Internet and not machines located on the GREEN interface because EFW fail to receive the ARP reply on the GREEN interface! IPSec tunnels are working intermittently.
I configured the exact same environment using a real machine either using Broadcom chipset (tg3 driver) or Intel chipset (e1000 driver) and the setup is working fine either using OpenVPN or IPSec.
Could it be a problem when using the pcnet32 driver?
I installed the VMWare Tools but I did not recompile the specific VMWare pcnet32 driver because I did not installed the EFW developement tools (GCC, ...). Could it be the cause of the issue? If yes, then where can I get Toolchain RPMs for binutils, GCC, ... to install it on this new release of EFW so that I can compile the VMWare's pcnet32 driver.

please try to
* update your esx to a recent version
* use "e1000" as adapter-type in esx
no issues for us with that config
