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.,, Leif +--- | This is the Midrange System Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: firstname.lastname@example.org +---
