I got a weird problem, and all the guys at my relatively small web dev company have giant question marks above their heads.
So here is the thing: we have turned PC of one of our ex developers into dev & testing server. It has local static IP address 192.168.0.40. It runs ubuntu server 11.10 with Apache 2.2.20 and PHP 5.3.6
We have one problem: it serves PHP pages extremely slowly ONLY to windows clients. So, if I try to fetch http://192.168.0.40/info.php from linux or osx machine, everything works as one would hope it to work - displays standard PHP information page immediately. But if I request from a windows machine on the same network, it takes about 5-10 minutes for the page to show up. We have tried with multiple win machines, always the same result. Also, when I try to fetch static HTML page, for example, http://192.168.0.40/index.html, it is displayed immediately on all machines, including Win. One more thing - virtual machines on Linux machines with Windows on them fetch php immediately.
I am not sure what might cause it. If you guys have any ideas/solutions, I would much appreciate your input!
