Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 44002
Ftp server time delaying to long
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:33:37 EDT
Description of Problem:
I setup ftp server with wu-ftp came with RedHat7.0 and the version of wu-
ftp is: wu-ftpd-2.6.1-6. Anyway, I put it out side the firewall and user
can access to it ok with no delay, but from the inside the firewall, we
have to wait atleast 30 second to be able to get to the login prompt.
I do not know what is happening. I did check with the network about time
delay for the pix, but that is not the case.
Any help or respond back much appreciated.
This is almost certainly a problem in your DNS setup.
wu-ftpd takes quite a while to connect if it can't resolve the hostname
belonging to the connecting IP.
