cygwin is slow with a new server setup
Fri Oct 10 11:46:00 GMT 2008
we have a very strange problem here. We did setup a new RHEL5 server with KDE
and xdmcp. Accessing the box from other Linux hosts and displaying X is no
problem and works good:
Xnet -query <newserver> :1
and I can work as if it would be locally.
When we access the same server from Windows machines with Cygwin everything is
extremly slow. Keyboard input is only displayed after about 2 seconds.
Tracing on the network shows that cygwin only sends out the input after that
time and linux is responding immideately.
On the other hand: cygwin works as expected with other, older Linux machines
where RHEL4 is installed.
Any ideas where we can search for the problem. Any hints? Thanks for any help
