Generally though this does sound like a problem with DNS as other(s) have mentioned. I had a similar problem recently when my bandwidth provider went down for a day or two (ick) and sshd was taking a _long_ time to respond because it was trying to run a lookup on the inbound IP address when none of my resolving dns servers were available. First if you want to test things out, try disabling everything in /etc/rc.conf and re-enable them one by one until you find out what's causing the hang (similar with /usr/local/etc/rc.d scripts). If it does turn out to be sshd (suspect it may be)... Ensure your hostname is set correctly and fire up named on boot. The default named setup is pretty safe on freebsd and simply acts as a caching dns resolver. Then just make sure you have: nameserver 127.0.0.1 in /etc/resolv.conf. -- Jez http://www.munk.nu/ _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
