Question Logging into SSH takes over 2-5 minutes!


Help, I am a total newbie at linux! I am trying to SSH to a remote machine, and I can

ssh root@ip
enter password:


It then stays at the enter password screen for 2-5 minutes even though I entered my password and pressed enter. It seems to happen to all of my virtual machines I made with parallels server(But are accessible on remote networks). This DOES not happen on another remote dedicated server, only virtual machines.

I can't seem to figure out the problem.


Also my other problem is, resolving websites... take FOREVER. Like 2 minutes or more to resolve what lxlabs.com is or cpanel.net, etc.



All help is appreciated!

The 2 problems are of the same reason. Your dns server is not working correctly, maybe because of a firewall of something that prevents it to do queries and get answers from other name servers.
Btw consider disabling the root login for ssh as a security measure.
