Re: strange SSH behavior
Weird!! I have a 3.0-current (as of a couple weeks ago) system where ssh
has been doing the same thing for about a week as well. No changes
whatsoever, so I'm at a loss. You may notice this as well, if I
intentionally enter a wrong password it bounces me right away. This leads
me to believe that I am being authenticated immediately, but the shell
environment is taking a long time to come up. I am using bash as my
shell, installed from the packages.
I have tried from both Putty (current version, SSHv2, Blowfish, et al) and
an OS/X command line which is running OpenSSH 3.02p2. Same thing both
cases. Once I do actually get in, it is the usual quick response. I'm
accessing via local LAN, same subnet.
This is not a DNS issue as I have been connecting from the same Putty
laptop for months with no problems. The mac is a new addition, however it
will connect to other systems right away so I'm fairly certain it's ok. I
don't know if this affects FTP as my system is a firewall and I have that
Well shoot, now I'm very curious as to what would cause both of our
systems to exhibit the same problem at roughly the same time. Something
date related perhaps? But then why isn't it common across the board?
