Check your nameserver and that your potato box is setup with the
correct nameserver. When you try to rlogin the login attempt is
logged along with information of where you were trying to login
from - instead of just logging the ip number an attempt is made
to lookup the name. The lookup times out after about a minute and
then you can log in...
