Especially if it's using the particularly sub-optimal (aka 'broken') network stack that a very popular server operating system has. In fact, some recent measurements of mine show a large variance even for a connection setup on a local network depending upon what IP stacks are involved: varying between 0.39s and 0.007s. (Unsurprisingly the broken stack referred to above works quite well with itself, and not too bad with an earlier OS from the same company - if I didn't know better I might believe that they only tested with their own systems.) (this isn't really operational so if you want names let me know privately. Perhaps someone out there has some clout.) James.
