Slow initial connection


My friend recently set me up a debian internet server. On the win2k client computers when accessing a website the initial connection takes around 30 seconds to connect and after that it speeds up while i look around that particular website, however again if i goto google it again takes ages to load up, but then the searches become fast.

Has anybody had this happen to them, and if so do u know how to fix the problem?

Welcome to LQ.

It sounds like you are probably having problems with your DNS servers. Take a look at /etc/resolv.conf and make sure that your nameservers are specified correctly - just post the contents of the file if you are unsure. Also -which ISP are you using.

To see the file:
cat /etc/resolv.conf

Looking at the support section for bigpond it should contain:
nameserver vic.bigpond.net.au

Also check your client and make sure that it has the same dns server set.
