- The machine is connected through a bridged interface.
- Connected to network by cable.
Not sure if I should really install network-manager on this system, so I can't check nm-tool output right now.
#ifconfig -a (from within the vm)

I've also installed varnish on it to see if it was just Apache being slow, but even with the varnish cache the images loaded slowly. I should mention that everything is fast except for images - they take ages...
I'm going to try VirtualBox and see how it goes, maybe it's some strange bug with KVM networking...
I've replaced the ethernet cables with brand new ones and tested connections with the server being behind the hub vs directly connected to the firewall in front of it with no difference- the FreeBSD server is fast no matter where it's placed on the network. I now believe it must have something to do with KVM.
Should this be moved to the Server category instead of Networking?
