Ping: sendto: No buffer space available

  • I finally got a OpenVPN TAP bridge established between 2 locations back to the main office and got it all automated and all that nice stuff but now I'm running into this problem.  After the WRAP has been up for a while and I try to ping the TAP ip at the office, I get this error:


    PING ( 56 data bytes
    ping: sendto: No buffer space available
    ping: sendto: No buffer space available

    I can reset the box and it'll work.  I'm only concerned because I've had to reload this compactflash 2 times now because weird stuff like this starts happening.  The next thing will probably be Operation not permitted when trying the mount the CF card on boot  :-\

    UPDATE I restarted the box waited for it to happen again.  Box has only been up for 37 minutes and I'm getting No buffer space available again.

  • under status > system how many of your firewall states are full?  You may also check under states to see what they are being used on, let me know what you see there.
