I have set up my linux box as a server and connected a win98 machine to it. I can ping linux but when I try to telnet or ftp, it does connect to linux but I am not prompted for a username/password, it's takes a couple minute then it asks me for a username.
So every time I want to telnet I need 5 minite just to connect. I thaught of a slow network, but once I telnet to linux, the conenction seems very fast.
can any body help on, I spend a lot of time on this.
