Re: Lag when sshing into OpenBSD 3.0 server
When you ssh to a box it does a reverse lookup on the Ip you are ssh'ing from.
If this Ip doesn't have a reverse lookup it takes a long time. Private
IPs(10.s, 192.168, and 172 sumthin) usually don't have reverse lookups set for
them unless you set them up yourself using your own DNS server. Alternativly
you can put the IP you are SSH'ing from in your hosts file on the server and
it goes more quickly.
