[RUN] Timeout occurs

Hello everybody!

I am having trouble running the circle30bpl18 under Win95. I can run it but
whenever somebody connects on it,
it does not display anything. But then after a while, it displays the log-on
screen but in a blink it
says Timeout then my connection is closed. Syslog says:

Mar 22 19:32:33 :: New connection. Waking up.
SYSERR: gethostbyaddr: No error
Mar 22 19:33:28 :: SYSERR: Missed 54 seconds worth of pulses.
Mar 22 19:33:28 :: SYSERR: Losing descriptor without char.

I tried to trace this and the cause was in comm.c. It seems that resolution
has failed as given by the code below:

  /* find the sitename */
  if (nameserver_is_slow || !(from = gethostbyaddr((char *) &peer.sin_addr,
                                      sizeof(peer.sin_addr), AF_INET))) {

    /* resolution failed */
    if (!nameserver_is_slow)
      perror("SYSERR: gethostbyaddr");

How could I get over this?

Thanks in advance!
