Slow SSH in Ubuntu 7.10

october 20, 2007

This is just a note to myself about ssh in Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbons).  When I was ssh'ing to different hosts, I noticed that it took forever.  To fix this, edit /etc/ssh_config and change: GSSAPIAuthentication yes to GSSAPIAuthentication no Not sure why that is turned on by default, but it was definitely the cause of my ssh slowdowns.
