Help needed on slow Intranet speed between server and client .

Hello !

I have Ubuntu 7.04 server installed on one machine which is running apache2.* This is linked to a PCLOS2007 box via crossover patch cable. The whole purpose of this setup was for me to tinker and become familiar with Apache, setup an experimental website and practise remote server admin.
Ubuntu Server IP :
When I put the above IP address into a browser in PCLOS2007 it takes a long time, about 40 seconds, for the index page to load. When I ping the server from PCLOS I get quite a swift response of, on average, 0.1ms. File transfers to and from the machines are both very fast so could anyone shed any light on what the problem could be or how to go about troubleshooting ?

uncle@PCLOS2007_$ wget
downloads the file in double quick time , transfer speed 1Mb /s.

It's a long time since I had this problem but it might be related to IPv6.

IF you have a file: /etc/modules.conf then look for:

alias net-pf-10 off # IPv6

try uncommenting it if commented or vice versa.
