Slow responce of Linux serven inside local network

Hello Experts,

I have some strange problem (probably DNS) inside my local network in office.
We have,
VMWARE XSI server running 2 virtual servers right now, Ubuntu server (For apache web server) and windows 2008 Srv as DC. My problem is strange, when i'm trying to access ubuntu via SSH  or any other protocol from local network, response from server can take up to 10 seconds,
But when i'm trying to access websites stored on this server there is no delay at all.

We have Fortigate 50b appliance as IPS and router in our local net. It is DHCP server as well.

Please assist.

1. It seems like a reverse DNS problem. By default, SSH will check where incoming connections are from by performing a reverse DNS query on the incoming IP address. This will work fine when you come from an external computer, but might fail when you come locally if you don't have DNS setup properly. If you haven't done so already, you could try to add all your computer's hostnames and IP address in /etc/hosts on all computers (especially the ssh server) to make sure the reverse DNS will succeed. Obviously, you'd need to use static IP addresses on your LAN for that to work.

2. Failing the /etc/hosts solution above, you could try setting the UseDNS setting to 'no' in the ssh server. To do this:

Code:

sudo nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config

add this line to the bottom (or change the 'yes' to 'no' if it's already in the config file):

Code:

UseDNS no

then restart the ssh server:

Code:

sudo /etc/init.d/ssh restart
