Slow connections

Hello!

I have FreeBSD 4.5 box with mail service (sendmail) and shell just for me (ssh). System performance: ~90% idle.

There are two subnets - in first one I have may workstation, but in second one lies this FBSD box. There are quiet good connections between those two subnets (two routers between). Ping statistic:
round-trip min/avg/max = 1.903/2.261/2.732 ms

When I making connections from same subnet where FBSD lives - everythig works well - fast connections and fast work. But when I making connection from other subnet - where are my workstation - process of connection takes too long (whatever - mail or ssh aprox. 30sec - 60sec to connect). But when connection finisshed (connected) everything works fast.

Although, I make connection with ssh verbosely - there is output:
SSH Version OpenSSH_2.3.0p1, protocol versions 1.5/2.0.
Compiled with SSL (0x0090600f).

The points after which it stops for a long time is: "debug: Entering interactive session", "Connection established" and "Received encrypted confirmation"

In the same time, connection to host in the same subnet with FBSD from my WS works fine. Thats mean, that problem is in thisFBSD box. But what is this problem?

The server is doing DNS lookups to translate the IP address of the client to a name. Check that (a) the server's DNS configuration is correct, and (b) the name server for the appropriate in-addr.arpa records is responding.

Since you get delayed multiple times, I'm guessing that (b) is the problem - bind8 doesn't cache the fact that a name server is not currently reachable.
