Subject: Re: [OMPI users] odd network behavior

Are all three machines running the same OS and version, perchance? If
the machines are heterogeneous in terms of OS, glibc version, etc.,
weird things like these hangs can occur.

Additionally, are you running a firewall on any of these machines?
Ensure that iptables isn't running. It doesn't sound like this is
your problem, but it's worth checking in terms of crossing off issues
that can cause problems...
