The Question is:
SMTP wait 5 min before starting dialog
We have mVAX 3100 VAX/VMS V7.2 CPU KA51 Microcode Rev #2 CONSOLE FW
REV#2.6 Patch Rev #1 with DEC VAXVMS TCPIP V5.0-9. Servers enabled:
PORTMAPPER, TELNET/RLOGIN, METRIC, POP, FINGER. Clients enabled:
REXEC/RSH, RLOGIN, SMTP, TELNET. Patche
s installed: VAXACRT01_072, VAXF11X01_072, VAXUPDATE01_072
When I execute the command:
$ telnet <nodename> 25
the system wait about 5 min before answering:
220 <nodename> ...
Same operatin in VAX/VMS V7.1 & UCX 4.1-24A take few seconds.
What happend in V5.0?
The Answer is :
Please first move to V5.0A.
Please also check for a bad route to the default gateway, as TCP/IP
Services uses the default gateway to reach the nameserver, and -- if
no nameserver can be found -- TCP/IP tries to use the default value
If the problem persists on V5.0A and a valid nameserver and gateway
are available, please contact the Compaq Customer Support Center.
