1. Newbie TCP/IP Ethernet problems (??)
I just finished installing Slackware Linux 2.0.27 on a P75 pci
motherboard. I am using a 3COM 3c503 PCI 10MBps NIC.
When I try to access the http server, FTP or Telnet across the LAN,
there is an unreasonably long delay before I get a response. In
Telnet, once I finally get the login prompt, everything is fast and
responsive as it should be. It takes over a minute before I get a
login prompt, but once I've logged in, it's all normal, 'ls' prints
out the directory contents at breakneck speeds, and everything else is
I've set up eudora to log into sendmail to check mail, which works
fine, no delays like with FTP, Telnet, or HTTP. I suspect inetd, but
in the http.conf, the server is configured as "standalone", so I'm not
sure that inetd has anything to do with http's slow response.
Is there some setting that I overlooked that defaults to some sort of
The only clue to a possible problem is a message during boot that
says something to the effect of " (Jumper card to enable sharing)"
near the network card's initialization. If this is the problem, what
do I change on a NIC that has no jumpers??
Any help is appreciated. Please email the address below, I've altered
the information in my headers to prevent the spammers from trolling
for my address.
