Scott, I actually asked IBM if the FTP was doing a lookup on the client IP address or name and the answer was a definitive "no". We had several customers experience this same problem. However, the FTP server does do a lookup on the AS/400 name. I can't remember why, but if it can't find it, there will be this 30 second delay.
