I think it isn't any communication problem on link (tcp) level, while I can see in the tcpdump log, there are hello
packets arrived at that time, but this router doesn't send hello to the other side. If there's problem to send packets
to another at link level, I can see them on the tcpdump log too. Don't you think?
There isn't virtualisation on these machines, and I except the firewalling thing too.
