Re: [vox-tech] Redhat/FTP/Win2k Question

It might be that the ftp server is trying to reverse the clients address and
is timing out because you don't have dns running.

You could look into setting up dns for your internal network, or if it's small
and all you want is a quick fix, add the win2k's ip + name to /etc/hosts.

If this is what's happening, it's happening to ftp and not telnet because ftp
requires (not always) a connection back to the client.


don't telnet, ssh :)

> 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 (, 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 ...
