Didn't find anything similar so: I have a mapnik OGCServer on an ubuntu 12.04 virtual machine (vmware player) which works fine. The problem occurs when i disconnect all network connections, when ogc server kind of hangs. On some occasion there was a fault saying something about a broken pipe. I actually noticed this on the airport where i had no connections. Any ideas what might be going on?
