Hmmm...  well the same path is between the systems (i.e. the  
sonicwalls and ISP etc).  I tried my Powerbook with similar results  
so I will rule our a bad NIC for now but that is something I might  
try as the Xserve has dual NICS.

I had a suggestion from sonicwall (MTU=1404).  I have set-this and am  
waiting on feedback from my users.

Thanks again,

Dan T
