A possible fix for slow SSH connections
Authored by: Lido on Mar 31, '05 05:50:35PM

Ok, I sudo'd and edited my /etc/hosts file and now it works. I don't like it that that is how it got fixed because it makes no sense to me. Did the recent security update disallow ssh connections to servers that don't have reverse dns set up? If so, that makes sense, but I still don't like it.

but you're going to a private address. That means your dns server has to do the resolution. Since you are putting the IP
address in the command line, that tells me you don't have
the sun in any dns.

From a terminal, run nslookup. Then you can do a couple things. First, check if any dns server is handling the 192.168
network you are accessing.

set q=soa

will check the class C network network.

and then

set q=any

will let you check the reverse lookup.
