Re: Telnet takes minutes

Thanks for the quick response.

Those particular machines (1.3.12) are all on different segments from each
other,  with different os's (NT,XP, and 2K). But I have tried from other
machines on both the same and different segments,  same result,  and from
different telnet clients (SGI,  Linux, NT, Cygwin...)  it seems consistant.
I even telneted to "localhost" and to the machine name and ip from
itself....  same result.  I assume reverse DNS is configured as it works (I
didn't know it was configurable)..   as a side note,  rsh/rlogin works like
a champ....
