I have a Linux server connected via Ethernet to my router. If I connect to the server from a laptop via wireless (192.168.2.2), all requests - whether terminal or HTTP - are slow. It takes a long time to respond to my login and web page requests.
The server is just for testing and has no load, so what could be causing the slow speed? Connections to the outside world are fast.
My router does not see my Linux box and the IP address it assigned,but I can connect to it from another . I have a DHCP client running.
Not really sure how adding my laptop to the servers hosts file will help. I'm used to having a hosts file on my client to redirect a domain name to a different IP (for testing websites). What would I put in the servers host file? I'm just connecting with an IP. (ssh firstname.lastname@example.org)or in the browser putting the IP address.
My hosts file looks like this:
127.0.0.1 localhost 127.0.1.1 NASBD122F.Belkin NASBD122F # The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts ::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback fe00::0 ip6-localnet ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix ff02::1 ip6-allnodes ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ALSO once I am connected via ssh , the commands run pretty fast
