Thanks to Auteria Wally Winzer Jr. <wally.winzer@ChampUSA.COM> for his
Apply the latest TCP, IP, and PPP patches for 2.5.1-x86.
I haven't had a chance to get the latest patches, I do have all of the
recommended patches installed as of March, 1998.
I solved the slow boot problem. My hosts entry in /etc/nsswitch.conf looked
host: dns files
Therefore it was trying to reach my DNS servers on the internet which were
not available at the time since the PPP connection was not up. Hence, I had
to wait for the DNS request to time out for both servers before it would
continue onto the next part of the bootup. When I did a sys-unconfig, the
dns entry of course, was removed from the /etc/nsswitch.conf file. Then
when I tried to reconnect, I always put the dns back so I could get
somewhere on the internet. (Hmmm, I seem to remember someone telling me do
ONE change at a time when trouble shooting). Now I have reversed dns and
files for the host entry and the bootup works fine.
However, the netstat -r is still slow, but only when my PPP connection is
not up and running. Any suggestions on that part of the problem are still
more than welcome.
