What distro are you using? If its got PAM then this might be part of your problem (I've managed to void PAM so far so its just a guess)

cheers

Hi,
It seems that you have not added your ip address in the Linux server, so you are getting the timeout, as well as I hope you are getting the logging prompt also after a long delay--- right ?

go to the Linux server and login by root

run the "netconf" command

then you will get so many option like shown below :

旼컴컴컴컴컴 Network configurator 컴컴컴컴컴컴
This package allows you to configure a
TCP/IP network from scratch using ethernet
and modem (or other serial connection)

旼컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴^컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴커
Exported file systems (NFS)
IP aliases for virtual hosts
Apache Web server
Domain Name Server (DNS)
Basic services
Samba file server
Ftp server (wu-ftpd)
Xterminals manager
냐컴컴컴컴컴컴컴Misc컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴
Information about other hosts
Information about other networks
Linuxconf network access
읕컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴
旼컴커 旼컴커
쿜uit 쿓elp
읕컴켸 읕컴켸
읕컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴컴켸
select Information about other hosts and add your client m/c ip address from where you wanted to access Linux server from client.

It will solve you problem, if not then feel free to contact me any time.

thanks

Ravi Sharma
