Hello Everyone,

I have a FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE box that has two network cards (Dual
Homed?). Each card is on a different network, as following
(from /etc/rc.conf):

ifconfig_fxp0="inet netmask"
ifconfig_rl0="inet netmask"
static_routes="net1 net2"

The fxp0 is connected to the outside world while the rl0 is connected to
the internal networks. I noticed whenever I ssh or try to telnet to port
25 on this box from 192.168.2.x for example, it delays the response by
something like 10 seconds, I even have a tcpdump of that!

Can someone explain what is wrong with my setup? Should I have routed
running? (I personally don't feel it is needed)

Thanks in advance for your help and guidance.

P.S. I got the above setup based on my understanding of the handbook, so
forgive me if I didn't understand it correctly :)
