Unix under VPN environment

By samprav ·
Hi all,I am using Unix Tru64 version 5.0a with Alphaserver.Previously the Unix was connected to the router.This router was used to connect to the remote branch with a lease line.Now recentely we have changed the router infact lease line with VPN.i.e. Now at both the branches we have Win2k VPN running hence the Unix is now Behind win2k VPN.I have added a static route in unix as for accessing the LAn range of remote branch use WIN2k Ip as a default gateway.But after a day or so the UNIX is showing me that the disk space in UNIX is full and the shared memory is not getting initialized.Does this change in gateway makes any kind of implecations on generating Log files or some other activities which tents to occupy system space?
I am really confused now about what could be the problem.Can somebody help me ?
Regards and thanks

You might want to consider upgrading to 5.1b1.

Use netstat -rn to find out if you are having a ton of entries added to your routing table. That will make sure you don't have any undiagnosed connectivity issues.

Next use the find command (find / -name core -print) to find all the core dumps. You probably have a single program that is dumping repeatedly. This would fill up the disk space.

Finally, use df to find which disk mount point is filling up.
