I'm having a problem with my WP installation that has me completely stumped.
Up until about 5 minutes ago, I thought I was having some sort of plugin problem or pinging something or ??? Now I'm not sure.
Here's the problem:
When I access my WP from off campus using Omniweb (my preferred browser), I get a 10 second or so pause before anything happens. Using Firefox results in immediate loading on the same connection. This pause only happens in WP, the other static html content on the server loads at the same speed on both machines. Also, in both cases, processor and disk usages looks to be about the same.
Now for the confusing issues... when I'm on the same subnet as the server, both browsers load instantly.
Confusing issue #2... windows machines using firefox on the local subnet experience the same delay. There's no delay with IE though.
Does anyone have any idea of what might be going on?
I'm using WP 1.2.2 on a gentoo linux box with mySQL. Just in case that matters.
