I have a AMD k6-2 chip powered machine on a LAN. The machines has a
Netgear FX310 card. I have been running Redhat 5.2 for a long time,
everything has worked perfect. However, when I try telnet and ftp the
linux host from other machines in the LAN, it takes more than one minute
to get a response.
Apache server on the same linux machine works great. When I check the
inetd.conf, I found that that the default setting is to let inetd start
tcpd, then tcpd check the access control files.
I am wondering how can I get the responses faster.
