Your last hint suggests that this is, in fact, a dns reverse resolution issue.
Log into your server which is slow and try to resolve the ip address of the host you trying to connect from (for instance, if you trying to connect from 10.0.0.1 to 188.8.131.52, log into 184.108.40.206 and execute something like "nslookup 10.0.0.1"). If the command times out, you found the issue. hth On Jan 1, 2008 4:03 PM, Forrest Aldrich <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > First, thank you to others who posted about this issue. > > I altered /etc/ssh/sshd_config for UseDNS no, and noticed I get the > prompt right away, however it still takes about 15 seconds after > authentication to get a shell prompt. > > This is FreeBSD version: FreeBSD 6.3-PRERELEASE #7: Sat Dec 22 11:12:15 > EST 2007 > > I noticed this behavior after the last system build and install.
