Thanks. Well its on the same segment of the lan on a 3Com managed 
(and not busy) switch.

I am using S/SA and I thought that should help ACK issues....

for a trial, I am going to fire up a drive loaded with OpenBSD 3.9 
and PF and see if there is anything better/worse with the same pf.conf file.

Something is amiss and unacceptable!
