Already tried that, but won't work. :-( It is not a resolver problem (rsh works
fine) and ident is not queried on either host (according to tcpdump). Also, you
probably would not query ident for a running connection every five seconds... :-/

Well, the really strange thing about this is that all the other services run
better on that interface (smb: 800kB/s on eth1, 600kB/s on eth0), but this may in
fact be the 3c509. It's just telnet.
