Hi all,

I've noticed that the very first time I ssh to my dfly box (after reboot), 
it takes about 5-7 seconds before I get the prompt.  Every time after that 
is almost instantaneous.  I don't think this happened under fbsd.  
Any ideas why?

The beaten path is for the beaten man.
I thought that most of the time this is a resolve issue, to be precise a 
reverse IP lookup of the machine you want to initiate the connection from.
So what does your /etc/hosts, /etc/resolve, dns server say _on_ the 
server say and does this match with reality?
