I'm trying to reach my server on campus from home. It is usually very well behaved and these connections are fine. When I attempt to ssh or ping I get the following:
mwoods 13 18:38:12 Trunk$ ssh email@example.com ssh: connect to host foo.edu port 22: Cannot allocate memory mwoods 14 18:40:44 Trunk$ ping foo.edu PING foo.edu (126.96.36.199): 56 data bytes ping: sendto: Cannot allocate memory ping: sendto: Cannot allocate memory Request timeout for icmp_seq 0 ping: sendto: Cannot allocate memory Request timeout for icmp_seq 1 ping: sendto: Cannot allocate memory Request timeout for icmp_seq 2 ^C --- foo.edu ping statistics --- 4 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100.0% packet loss
Similar story with curl. Trying to view the webpage hosted by this server creates a very fast
Error 13 (net::ERR_OUT_OF_MEMORY): Unknown error. message in Chrome. It appears any connection reports insufficient memory.
I can successfully ssh to this machine if I ssh into any other machine in the building, or from another computer in my house (no issues once connected). So it is clearly something related to my laptop. I have been VPNing with Juniper "Network Connect" to completely separate network recently and this problem has only appeared since I've begun this.
So my question is, what about the VPN is causing this and how do I fix it (besides a restart of my laptop which solves the problem)?
