A script to workaround slow ssh connection issues
Authored by: pumpichank on Dec 28, '07 10:41:11AM

I had this problem after upgrading from Tiger to Leopard and it drove me crazy. Successive levels of ssh -d didn't really help narrow the problem down, and I even tried running a debug on the server just in case.

In any event, I was debugging a different problem (new wireless router) and I noticed that I had an old domain in my static DNS search list. This domain was for an old job, and the domain no longer exists. I removed this and just search my dhcp provided domain, and ssh is once again very fast -- as fast as from my Linux boxes.

Go to Network Preferences -> Advanced -> DNS and make sure you only have the search domains you're expecting.
