Re: [bug-inetutils] ftp Connection timed out with a minimal linux 2.4.21
Re: [bug-inetutils] ftp Connection timed out with a minimal linux 2.4.21 embedded system

No but I was able to fix the issue.
The problem was the MAC-address of the system. it was 11:11:22:22:33:33
I have configured another MAC (00:00 ...) and now it's working well.
I did not know that there some special requirements to the MAC
(besides that it must be unique in the network).
