some more details are in order then:

Are both source and destination on the same subnet? If not, what's the
basic network setup (rcp through local routers vs. off-site, VPNs,
Internet, whatever else is involved)

Do pings go through between the involved nodes? Do they go through with
large block sizes?

Have you tried snooping with ethereal ("wireshark" nowadays) to see
what the last part of the traffic is?

Which "logs" have you checked?

Does invoking rsh work? Any hangs in the output when transfering larger
bits of stdout (from something like "find /")?


from the times when today's "old school" was "new school"
