I am new to Linux/Unix and I am trying to telnet to Linux from a Sun Solaris
2.6. My problem is -- it is taking so long -- over a minute to telnet to the
Linux box. But if I telnet from a Win95/98/NT box using the console telnet I
don't experience the delay. I am on the same network. Also, is how can I
telnet to the Linux box as root. I am sure that it can be done because I
telnet to my Sun Solaris box as root. I also do not experience the long
Another problem is related to SMTP. I telnet to Linux port 25 and send mail
and I experience a long response delay and then my mail is queued and never
gets delivered to the recipient. I get sender ok and recipient okay from
SMTP. I am using sendmail 8.8.7 I believe on Redhat 5.0 distribution.
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Pointing me to the right references
will be fine too. Again thanks.
