Telneting and ftping to PDC

I had a similar problem to this and what solved it for me was making sure
the default gateway pointed the the correct device.  Use the netstat and
ifconfig commands to see where your default gateway is.  If it is pointed
to the wrong device it will take a long time for telnet and ftp sessions
to open.  In my setup, I had my default gateway set to a non-existent
device (automagically by instaltion).  When I removed the non-existing
gateway by the route command, everything worked just fine.

good luck
