    delay on connecting via ftp


    I'm running SuSE Linux 7.1. I'm running it with all the default installation settings. When I try to ftp to it the connection pauses a good 30 to 60 seconds before actually connecting. I am connecting internally within my own network which makes the delay even stranger. I have noticed this on other hosts where when connecting via ftp there is a noticeable delay. However with most hosts the connection is immediate. Is there an easy explanation for this delay, some sort of beginners mishap or something?

    Any advice is appreciated

    Check your TCP Wrappers and do not configure it to be so paranoid. Specifically, check those /etc/hosts.allow,deny files.
