Slow login to RetHat 6.2 on a LAN
Posted on 2002-03-05
I have two RedHat 6.2 Linux machines on a local network (IPs in the 192.168.0.* range).
I'm having trouble in connecting to either machine: Whenever initializing connection (from another computer on the local network) either by FTP or telnet, it takes several minutes until I get response (e,g, login prompt). Once I login however the connection is fast and flawless.
It is ridiculous because I have similar machines hosted outside and it is faster logging to them by modem than logging to the internal machines on the LAN!
What can be the problem? Ask me if you need further info.
