Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have the following problem: network connections are only very speedy with the FQDN. If I use the machine short name the connection is slow, i.e.:
ssh machine.domain.com -> fast
ssh machine -> slow
ping machine -> fast
/etc/resolv.conf, /etc/nsswitch.conf, /etc/hosts, /etc/host.conf are correctly configured.
/etc/resolv.conf has propertly configured "nameserver",
/etc/nsswitch.conf hast "hosts: db files dns nisplus",
/etc/hosts has configured short and FQDN of "machine",
/etc/host.conf has "order hosts, bind"
can you show us your resolv.conf files?
there's a "search" line in it, that should be like "domain.com", this line tell your box what to add to the "short" when trying to locate an incomplete hostname (well I think that's the purpose lol)
eeeh what's your network architecture?
Are you using a router, a NAT or something like this? often, slow connection is due to fragmentation.. I don't see how it could happen only with long host name, but... setting your MTU lower than 1500 might help...
Also, is your "/etc/hosts" file correct? maybe there's some syntax mistakes in it slowing down the process (or maybe the file is damn too long).
Anything that can lead us on the right way in the log maybe (client and dns server, if you have access to it)
