[IDDBrasil #XSZ-617864]: problems with solon

OK, sounds good.

Some time ago, I had a discussion with David about loading Linux on solon.
I was quite happy to see the FreeBSD installation on solon replaced with
Linux.  Since then, we have learned that several generations of the Linux
kernel have a "FUTEX" problem.  Please do a Google (tm) search using
'FUTEX' to learn more about this situation.  I mention this to warn of a
potential problem if certain OS releases are loaded.

I grabbed Steve Emmerson to take a look at your allow line, and he noted that
it was incorrect.

You had:

allow   ANY     ^200\.244\.76\.*$

and it should be:

allow   ANY     ^200\.244\.76\..*$

I logged onto solon as 'ldm' and did the following:

- corrected the allow line above
- commented out the explicit allow lines:

allow   ANY     ^200\.244\.76\.125$
allow   ANY     ^200\.244\.76\.122$

- restarted the LDM:

ldmadmin restart

We see the Navy machine connecting correctly:

You should also begin the process of getting a visa.

Yes, we are now using eSupport (SupportSuite actually, http://www.kayako.com).
