I don't really understand what the problems were, I'm parroting Steve Martin from Conxion. Apparently there were three problems inside PacBell's cloud -- Steve had technicians at several points in the cloud, plus at least one person from Cisco, in a conference call when the net finally came back last night.
Steve's description of the problems: there was a "bad port"; there was a misconfigured ATM to frame relay translation; there were "bad OAM cells." Perhaps somebody on this discussion group knows better what these things mean.
About the bad OAM cells -- my understanding was that packets are broken down into cells then re-assembled. Apparently our packets could not be re-assembled, as the cells were bad, generating (I think I have this right) bad header information.
There are responses to this message:
