Slow connection to RedHat ftp server?

Slow connection to RedHat ftp server?

Post by Paul Lloy » Thu, 16 Apr 1998 04:00:00

I have managed to install Redhat 5 and set up http and ftp. connecting from
a w95 machine to http works fine but ftp says it is connecting and I can
here a short Harddisk actively on the Linux machine but then it is a couple
of minutes before I see the ftp tree appear on the w95 machine.
Does anyone know why the delay and how to change it?
Being very new to Linux I am not sure of any settings etc. All I have done
is installed, let it find my Dec202 ethernet card and used ADDUSER to setup
an account.

Thanks for you help

1. RedHat 6.X/7.X and Slow FTP/Telnet Connections


I've been using Redhat 6.2 and for the first couple of days..  ftp and
telnet would connect almost instantly.  After that, it takes anywhere
between 30 and 120 seconds to connect.

I upgraded to Redhat 7.1.  And I still get the same problem.  First couple
of days alright, after that the very slow connect times.

On the box when I do telnet/ftp, it connects right away.  Then if
I do telnet/ftp (the IP of the box) from the box, it has the
same slow connection time.

It usually takes more than 5 attempts to log in because the connection times

I have edited the hosts file to include all the PCs.

I read one post claiming this was a Problem with Redhat and its derivatives

Any idea what is going on?
