OT - nfs hangs

Hello all,

I understand this has nothing to do with trinity, but there seem to be people 
on this list that understand this stuff more than I do.

I've got an older machine (quad core) that I wanted to convert in a network 
backup. It runs Jessie and mounts an nfs share on my main machine so that I 
can copy important  files.

The problem occurs when I transfer bigger quantities of data (I mean several 
GB, mostly in  smaller files of a few hundred MB):

- If the server runs Debian stretch, everything is fine.

- If the server runs AntiX 17, the copy sooner or later hangs because the 
server lost the network (the message I got is err_network_changed). there may 
be another way but I solve the problem by restarting teh machine.

Now, the question is this: AntiX 17 is based on stretch. It does not run 
systemd, nor does it network manager. Network configuration is done with ceni 
(method static, class auto).

The exports file is the same in both cases (copied from Debian to AntiX).

If anyone has a clue to give me where to look for this difference in 
behaviour, I'd be glad! I like AntiX because of no systemd, but...
