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.
