My Linux box (RH50) is connected to the internet over a PPP connection. Client
applications run fine for web browsing, news, etc., and my Apache web server
works fine on non-binary files. Loading graphics, however, even small ones
takes forever it seems. When someone accesses a text-only page of say
4000 bytes, it transfers almost instantaneously, but if there's a 4K
graphic, it might take it 20 sec. or longer.
Incoming ftp is also very, very slow. I tried ftp'ing a 3K file from my
Linux box to another system and it took almost a minute. I can download
*to* my box at a rate of about 3K char/sec.
Anyone have any tips on how I can diagnose and solve this problem? It seems
to occur mainly when transmitting binary data from my system to another one.
I've looked at all the relevant log files and found nothing. Any tips would be
