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

btw - have tried with passive mode on and off... no diff.

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