I wonder if this is a manifestation of the problem I saw about a year
I installed a QFE card in a SPARCstation 5, which I was using as my NAT
router with "pf" (netbsd-7). The first thing I noticed was that FTP
connections would fail being passed to 'ftp_proxy' if tcp4csum-tx were
set on the internal interface. Later, I experienced bizarre failures
visiting the web site of a motel chain attempting to check availability
of rooms. Disabling all the hardware assists didn't fix the problem.
I didn't try forcing the media as 'automatic' seemed to Just Work(tm).
When I replaced the SS5/QFE-based router with a Soekris net4501 using
the exact same "pf" rules (modulo interface names), the problems went
Prior to the QFE card, I was using the 10Mb/s qec(4) card in the same
SS5 and it worked just fine.
I had also used multiple discrete HME cards in NAT routers built out of
SPARCstation 5s with quite some success, but that was prior to netbsd-7.
If I can round up enough of them, I could try that again.
