We are using Solaris 2.5. When telnet or ftp to it, even via LAN or from itself, it respone very slowly at beginning.

For example. when I telnet to it, it takes 3 - 5 minutes until "login:" prompt cames out. But after the "login:" prompt, it becomes normally and reacts very quickly.

However, ping always response quicky. And there is no problem with DNS and routing.

Thanks in advance.

This porblem probably is related to nameserver problem. SOunds to me like the machine(s) are waiting for a nameresolv timeout until they fall back unto /etc/hosts or something.

So, check the /etc/resolv.conf (if you use DNS) so correct domain and nameserver is given there. Also check /etc/nsswitch.conf so that hosts have the following order: hosts: files dns or if you use nis: hosts: fils nis or if you use both: hosts: files nis dns

Also check that domainname ic correct (the NIS domainname) and that ypbind is running so it bind to the the ypserver.
