Another way?
Authored by: robg on May 30, '01 12:34:44PM
This was submitted by "anonymous", and appears to be another way to remove the SSH delay. I have not tested this myself.


The SSH delay is due to the fact that SSH runs arp with the flags "-an", which tickles an arp bug. Arp works fine if you call it with the flags in reverse order.

The simplest solution to this problem is to rename /usr/sbin/arp to /usr/sbin/arp.hack, then put the following text in the file /usr/sbin/arp:
/usr/sbin/arp.hack -n $@
Finally, run chmod +x /usr/sbin/arp. Now, SSH won't hang anymore.
