I have encountered the following problems when using TACO:
The communication between the link daemon, linkd, and the
pesto-taco daemon, ptacod, did not work properly. Entering and
leaving weakly connected operation were not acknowledged. During
testing the entering and leaving weakly connected operation were done using: echo WEAKLY CONNECTED >.pesto.commstat echo DISCONNECTED >.pesto.commstat
Tests using a simple link changing simulation program showed that the fault
was not within my program.
The client often halted when re-entering connected operation (i.e.,
re-establishing the Ethernet connection) after (voluntary) disconnections. In
these cases it was necessary to re-boot the machines in order to get a full
connection. This was quite frustrating!
