We have the following problem with Windows XP SP3 Novell Client 4.9 SP5 IR1.
Novell login screen appears, but it still takes 40-72 seconds to send a DHCP-Request
from Windows XP to DHCP-Server (Novell OES2 SP3)

What can be the cause for this delay?
(The NIC IEEE 802.1X Authentification delayed by 20-30 Sec)

For your efforts in advance, thank you.
