keyboard slows down possible network issue -???
I just installed RH 9 and am pretty much a newbie at this whole thing.
I noticed something weird happening. When I am typing at a command line from my windows machine, I noticed that there is a delay from when I type to when it gets shown on the screen. This usually only happens when I am typing fairly fast, lets say 30WMP. But it gets quite annoying waiting for a word to show up, and then typing backspace, and waiting to see if backspaced the correct number of times.
I think it may be a network issue because well I havent changed anything on the machine other than during the installation it asked for incoming services and I check off ssh and ftp.
Another simple test that I ran is this. I tried loading emacs and a C program I wrote that was about 400 lines.
On my windows machine using SSH it took 46 seconds for it to fully render the window.
From a friend's RH 9 machine in a different town over cable modem it took 19 seconds.
When I sit down locally at the console, neither the typing problem appears, and emacs loads in about 2 seconds.
Finally since I am running an X-Server (Xwin32) on my windows machine, I noticed that not much data is actually being sent to the windows machine, IE it sends a bit, stops, sends a bit more, stops. (using taskmanager in winxp).
I am connected to the machine through a 100MB switch, so that isn't the issue.
Here is the setup
AMD Athlon 800
I am the only person connected, and like I said I just installed it yesterday, with the default of everything installed. I did actually use redhat-config-network to input my hostname (where does this get stored btw??).
Other than that no changes. Is there anywhere I should be looking to begin trying to trace the problem.
