You may not be doing a DNS lookup on your AS/400's IP address... but as
soon as you connect the AS/400 is taking YOUR IP address and using DNS to
find out the name of your client.

This is pretty standard with any internet service anywhere.

If the PC (or whatever) that you're coming FROM isn't set up with proper
reverse-DNS entries, there will be a 30 second pause until the lookup
times out.   This might be what you're experiencing.

Trying adding your PC (or whatever you're coming from) into the AS/400's
host table with CFGTCP option 10, and see if that solves the problem.
