The linux client takes a long time to start
3 minute delay before the login box appears


The problem may be caused by an invalid IP address stored in /etc/hosts
Modify /etc/hosts on the local workstation and look for any entries that refer to the local machine. There is likely an entry similar to: yourmachine

Make sure that there is not another entry with an invalid or incorrect IP address. If you find one remove it and restart the network services.
rcnetwork restart
