I just joined the list when I found out there was a
LUG at UCD (I start there this fall). I hope to make it to some of your
meetings, sounds like a good group you got going here.
Anyways, onto my question. I just set up a
linux box running Redhat 7.1 and got everything up and working ok. I have
a local network going, between that machine and my win2k computer. All
connections are good and working. I can telnet and ping fine. My
only problem comes when I go to FTP to the linux box. I'm using CuteFTP,
and go to the address of my linux machine (10.10.10.1), and it says Socket
Connected, waiting for welcome message, and it takes forever to log in!!
Literally, it takes like 2 full minutes before it logs in. Then it's
fine. Now, telnet comes up within like 1 sec and is ready to go, but FTP
seems to stall ...
I'm using whatever the default FTP server is that
comes with RH, I think it's WUFTP or something like that. Any one have any
ideas why it might take so long? And what I might do to fix it? I'm
stumped. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
