To me it looks like a DNS issue: while you're running the transfers over
the DSL line it's overloaded, and DNS queries can take a long time.
The solution would be to run a caching nameserver locally.
Yes, I can ping the server and open a ssh connection using its IP-number.
My little LAN (one private subnet, less than eight computers) has no DNS
service, the router (which hosts the DHCP service) only forwards
DNS-queries to the InternetServiceProvider.
Thanks for your advice, I'd like to try it. Can you please recommend a
suitable software /package?
