Does the ftp session get established (as in you can xfer files) or does it
just take ages and ages to get authenticated?

If it's the latter it is usually something to do with forward or reverse
DNS lookups, and the ftp server requiring a forward or reverse lookup
before authenticating a login.

Had that problem here once.
