A possible fix for slow SSH connections
Authored by: legacyb4 on Mar 31, '05 10:51:38AM

Sounds like your sysadmin didn't set up reverse records on your internal DNS server where you are connecting to. This is a temporary fix, but not having those in place can affect a handful of other network services relying on the ability to do these lookups.

Static DNS

If it is a DNS problem a static DNS entry in the current Network Location would fix it. Static DNS's get put ahead of the DHCP DNS's in the resolv.conf file.

What legacy said.
You (or your site admins) need to fix your DNS records so that reverse lookups work.
