Sounds suspiously like a DNS problem.
At a guess, I reccon the client connects to the server, the server
then attempts to do a reverse lookup on the cluents ip, it can't,
the lookup fails after a couple of seconds and the connection continues....
Check what dns server(s) your server is configured to query (/etc/resolv.conf)
and check that it is able to communicate with them, that they are running
a name service and will answer queries on the IP's and host names of the
server and clients.... don't forget things like ipchains on the server...
Also check the DNS config on the clients, though they are probably ok...
Mr. Rogers could explain shoe-tying and make it seem like the coolest
thing in the world. He was our Uncle and older brother. He told us we
were special, and we knew he'd be there for us.
A cult leader, right down to the sneakers.
