Strange issues with 7.2
Let's start first with this - a couple of days ago we had to change our ISP and now everything is configured and working, but however there are some small issue that I just cannot understand.
At home I have a FreeBSD 6.1 gateway which is doing NAT for the internal network, firewall-ing, etc.. Behind the gateway I've another 7.2 system which I use for file server, and one 7.2 Desktop system, and a couple of Windows machines. Everything is working fine, except for BSDs.
First - pinging a remote host from BSD systems takes way too much, than pinging the same host from a Windows machine. Don't know why but resolving hostnames under the FreeBSD systems is taking too much time.
On the same 7.2 desktop system I also have Windows XP and Debian installed. Under Debian resolving a remote host also takes a lot of time, while under Windows XP - everything is working just fine!
Just to mention - nothing was changed or installed on these systems recently.
The second thing is that startx on the 7.2 desktop is taking also a lot of time to start up (usually it was taking ~1 second to load, and now it's taking ~5-10 seconds!).
top shows nothing, expect that for a very short period of time hald was doing something - so I disabled it. Rebooted the system and tried to startx and then X couldn't start and I get this errors:
Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 key
Do you know what might be causing this? All BSDs have issues while resolving hostnames, while Windows machines do not..? And X is just waaay too slow now.. That's definitely something that I haven't come across.. until now.
Thanks for any feedback and sorry for the long post
