Sorry for poor english. I hope you will understand my problem.

Everything worked excellent!!

But now my ftp and ssh connections very very slow!!
I start the putty, asks the username, and here comes the waiting after 70sec the asks the password

[08:02:13] LIST -aL
[08:04:30] 150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for file list
[08:04:30] 2123 bytes transferred. (211 bájt/s) (00:00:10)
[08:04:30] 226 Transfer complete.

1. First check the ping to your server.
2. Is your server in your local network? If not, check the speed of your internet connection.
3. Maybe server is running some script all the time, and is very busy because of that.
Maybe you added any jobs in "crontab"?
4. type "top" to your console, and check which process takes lots of memory
5. Try to reboot the server.

Hope it helps..,

Could also be a ram issue as I recently had that issue which slowed down the login.

Not sure if you have more IP's on the server (like virtual NIC's with IP's), but if so, try connecting to the 1st IP (the one running on eth0)

When I FTP to one of my virtual NIC's the system is also slow, but as soon as I use the 1st real NIC, it's fast as hell!

I have no clue what is causing this..

Any errors in your log files related to your problem?
Could be a firewall problem. What's the output of
netstat -tap
iptables -L

Same on my Debian 3.1 with Proftpd. Not a matter of RAM or CPU (2GB RAM and 3GHz CPU, <2% load) but connecting to the second ip on the NIC is slow. Transfer speed is good but it takes 5-10 seconds between connection is established and the greeting and username/password prompt.

Not a clue as to what is causing it. Just strange and annoying...

Not really adding a solution here but I have noticed ftp and ssh running slow, if I connect to the control panel its fine but ftp really slow. I have similar spec machine and I have suse 10 64bit installed.
