Delays in multiples of 30 seconds are often failing DNS lookups. Are
you handing out 2 dns server addresses where only one works? Does the
tftp server try to look up the connecting IP address for logging? If
you are using the standard 2-nic setup these will be in your hosts file
but could cause the delay if use different ranges and don't have them in
the tftp/nfs server's hosts file or have the zone in your DNS server.
