Connecting to local ProFTPD takes a long time


I have a Gentoo system running the latest version of ProFTPd. When connecting to the FTP server from another system in my network it takes quite a long time (20 seconds or so) before I have to enter the username and the password. I tried different clients etc but that doesn't matter. Once I am connected, the speeds are superb.

If I do a local connect (so ftp localhost) on my Gentoo system, everything is fine and fast.

What could this problem be?

Check/configure your local DNS. For simplicity put the IP address and hostname of the FTP server on a machine you are using as a ftp client and vise versa put IP and hostname of the FTP client on the FTP server in /etc/hosts file.

Add this to the global section of your proftpd.conf file:

Code:
UseReverseDNS  off
IdentLookups  off
