I made a lot of progress since this last email.
What I'm doing is swapping my old DNS server (emachines)
for a heftier (HP Kayak). I did not have /usr/lcal/etc/dhcpd.conf
on the new HP server configured correctly. I edited, KVM'ing
between the old Emachines, and things got better: ping, for
example. But ssh still took a *long* time.
My hardware guy has swapped my DSL ethernet card about
four times. Right now, things are back to the way they
were and everything works. *This time* I've scp'd the
dhcp.conf file over to this server, tao. In about an hour
we're going to swap things back.
(Of course, without DNS, thought.org vnishes. I expect to
hear lots of angry email about couldn't-get-thru, but too
bad. My hardware pal is going home fairly soon, and I can't
do this solo.... Sooooo..)
thanks fo your help.
PS: My DNS stuff seemed ok.
