Slow OpenSSH Logins


Hello,

I was wondering about something. I use Mandrake 9.1 and OpenSSH. When I SSH to one of my machines, it takes a few seconds to connect, then a few more seconds to authenticate my password. In my old Redhat 7.3 boxes, everything was instant.

I move from box to box often, and this delay just kind of stinks given my level of patience. Any ideas on to what OpenSSH or Mandrake is doing to cause the login process to slow down?

Thanks!

ok, how is your machine connected, because if it's by modem, or even 10 baseT it might be a little slow.

My machines are connected via 100 ethernet. Network is plenty fast, it's definetely the SSH itself. I can ssh user@localhost and it'll be slow to process the logins.

It might not be definetely ssh, dns lookups may take precedence, make sure that localhost is defined in /etc/hosts, and /etc/host.conf has
Code:
order hosts, bind
multi on
, so it will look through hosts file first and then if the host it is looking for isn't in /etc/hosts it will perform dns lookup
