    Slow Login

    Hi Guys,
    I have a strange problem which happens more often than not.

    When I login to SSH, FTP or view the actual computer names on the network it is very slow for some reason. Once logged in or I get to the point of seeing all the files/directories in Samba everything is lightening quick as it normally would be.

    I have modified the /etc/hosts file and added each machine which accesses the network but this hasn't rectified the problem.

    The following software is what I'm running

    Mandrake 9.0

    SSH - OpenSSH_3.6.1p2, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL 0x0090609f

    FTP - ProFTPD Version 1.2.5

    Samba - Samba version 2.27

    Keep in mind this is only a fairly new installation of Mandrake 9.0, I wouldn't say more than 2 weeks old.

    Once you are connected via SSH, FTP, Samba things fly, it appears to be slow on the initial login or when su'ing to another user/root.

    Any ideas as to the cause of this?

    Any help would be great.
