Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 8138
Telnet Access to Linux server
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:53 EDT
Following a server install of Linux 6.1.
At reboot it takes around 30 seconds to bring up the eth0 services.
Is this normal.
Also on attempting a telnet session via TCP/IP to the server the logins take around 40 secs to spawn
This is a result of setting an incorrect host name or pointing the server
configuration at a DNS server taht does not exist (or it is not functional), or
telling the installer to use DHCP/bootp to initialize the eth0 devices when no
DHCP server is available, etc.
Please check your setup or contact firstname.lastname@example.org
