why does a 3com 4200G need 200 attempts ???

Which is the correct HP-forum for a "switch 3com 4200G 24port" ?


I have a severe problem in our LAN, and to me it looks as if it is a switch-problem.
Is this a known bug in the 4200G ?


Look at this test case: It took circa 200 attempts, until the two machines found each other.

Is that the fault of the switch? How do I have to configure the switch differently? I used the config with which it came.

Thanks a lot!
