I want to connect  to remote host using
ssh XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX -l root -p XXXX

It's takes 30 seconds to prompt password in Ubuntu (as an opposite, putty client almost immediately asks password), how to eliminate initial password prompt delay?
Also, after  password promopt, it waits only 30 seconds for input, then saying connection close. How to make it 1 hour?

If you unite this two behaviours, you will decide that it's pretty much unefficient. because I must stare for 30 seconds at console.

It could be several things client or server, you'll need to check both..

What happens sometimes is that reverse DNS is not working like it should, you could try by turning DNS requirement off in the ssh config file by adding "UseDNS no" to /etc/ssh/sshd_config

Another thing that sometimes solves these issues is by turning off GSSAPI authentication by adding the line "GSSAPIAuthentication no" to /etc/ssh/ssh_config or maybe on the client side, then it will go into  ~/.ssh/config probably.

Also, calling command
ssh hostname.domain -l root -p 9333

Open in new window

You could try setting the "LoginGraceTime" to 0 (zero) in the ssh config file on the server, or to a more specific number of minutes, like you want ...
