ssh password prompt delay long while


hi,

due to some reason, i need to unplug the internet connection from the router. so, sth strange happen! it make the ssh return the password prompt very slow (1 min. after login input , although the login prompt up same as b4.)

anyone have idea about this?

Usually the problem is dns..
The ssh server is trying to find your pc's name from it's ip address.

Add an ip address and name into the server's /etc/hosts file for each dhcp entry the router gives.
Usually, the router will give the same ip address each time, but it can change, (so you may have to give many entries).
