Forum Readers:

I've recently updated to MacOS 9 and have uncovered what I think my be a bug regarding Virtual Memory (VM). The following has been confirmed on three different 5200's, though I've not found it present on any other machines.

If VM is ON, none of the internet applications have any throughput and will eventually time out. This includes:

Eudora Pro 4.2.1
Sherlock II
Quicktime Updater
Netscape Nav/Comm (any version)
Explorer (any version)
ICQ (Gerry's ICQ as well)

Now, I am able to connect to the internet just fine and hold the connection (Earthlink as ISP) but nothing will come back through, and I will eventually time out. I am running with 64M of RAM with no other software on the drive. I've tried two different drives myself, several installs, etc. The other peers with
5200's have different setups (amount of RAM, HD size, ISP, modem) but have
this same issue if VM is on.

If I turn of VM, everything runs like a charm.

Thoughts anyone?
