Topic #110 Slow?!

I haven't seen it anywhere on this forum or on the Net in general so I suppose I'm having a pretty unique problem: WiPha is dead slow.
It takes about 5-10 minutes to get a page loaded in Safari, but not in Firefox. I haven't seen it with anything else. Any thoughts?

No, this had never been reported so far.
I suppose you may have an issue with your Safari preferences ?
Have you tried creating a new OSX account to get a fresh Safari preference, and accessing wipha from this new account ?
Other than that, I have no idea.

Thanks, but yes, I've tried it with several users (of which one was fresh) on the same and on a different Mac (one PowerPC and one Intel, both 10.4.6) as well and it's all the same behaviour: Safari is really, really slow and firefox is as it should be.
Any more idea's?cool

Would you have some plugins installed in your Safari, such as Safaristand or whatever ?

I'll check this week end with my Safari... But I think it's unlikely I'll have the same problem. It this case, it would already have been reported.

Nope, no special Safari plugins.
I can use WiPha, but not with Safari right now. Ah well, unfortenately most of my friends/relatives use Windows so they have a problem as well watching my pics.
Any idea if IE 7 works better with WiPha?

No idea at all.
But having your friends using WiPhA is a good oportunity to suggest them a move to Firefox, for those who haven't done it already.biggrin
Remember, IE sucks...

Yeah I know, but I'm not an Evangelist kind of guy I'm aftraid. Life and let life is my motto. wink.

Well but now for the more serious part of this thread: I absolutely don't understand it, but here the situation now:
If I try to access WiPha locally (from within my LAN I mean) it's dead slow (in Safari only).
If I access it through the external IP address (http://62.194.18.212/~huiskamer/wipha/) it works like a charm (again: in Safari).

Wha't up? Well anyway, I 've stopped wandering and make use of this (external) work-around.

Thanx for thinking with me. Paul.

I'm gonna send this to a sysadmin friend. If he has an interesting answer, I'll add it here.

I have the same behaviour here (slow with Safari on 127.0.0.1). I did'nt notice it before because I had no local network when I developped WiPhA. I just installed my router a few weeks ago.
My friend suggests it may be related with the dns resolution, but I don't really know how to troubleshot it.

It has indeed something to do with the dns, but I don"t understand what and how.

I tried to set 127.0.0.1 as an http proxy (system pref, network, proxys tab): this solved the issue, but I could not access anymore the outside sites.

Then, I "played" with the TCP/IP tab, trying to add different IP addresses as DNS: no change. After some more similar tests, as removing ".com" from the Search Domains" field, and adding it back, safari is working fine.
I end now with no change at all, and Safari working as fast as Firefox. And still no clue what happens....confused
