Mark, I am using a numeric IP address.
My HOST file does contain the correct IP address and system name
on the PC that has the 30-second delay.

On the PC that has no delay the HOST file contains an irrelevant
old IP address that doesn't point to a valid system anymore,
yet FTP connect is instantaneous.

I'm al;most tempted to put garbage in the host file for the slow PC.,,
