Mac OS X Network Problem: Slow Remote Login (SSH): Fixed

# Filed on Feb 3, 2008 by AnthonyDiSante 1 reply

Sometime over the past few months, it started to take a really long time to SSH into my Mac Mini from my Linux system.  They’re both on a 100 megabit LAN, but from the time I’d type "ssh user@mini" on my Linux system, it took exactly 30 seconds for the "Welcome to Darwin" message to appear.  So obviously it was waiting for some kind of timeout to expire.

The fix was to edit the /etc/hosts file on the Mac Mini and add a line for the Linux system; now logging in via SSH is instant.  So it looks like the Mini was for some reason trying to do a reverse DNS lookup on the incoming IP, and timing out since I’m not running a local DNS server.  Various websites suggested disabling IPV6 on the Mac, but that didn’t help.

You can add / edit the line

#UseDNS yes

to

UseDNS no

in your /etc/sshd_config to avoid having to manually add every host on your network, changes will take effect after the service is restarted

FileChucker is helping drive the backend of several high profile entertainment sites for people like Shania Twain and Dolly Parton.  We're also using it to drive backend file uploads for a multi-billion dollar banking institution.  It's a great product.  We've tried other "chucking" upload solutions with progress bars using flash and php, but nothing works as reliably as FileChucker.

I just installed the demo of your product and got it up and running in no time.  I searched high and low for a decent login script and thank God I found yours.
– Adrian F.
FileChucker is working great...  Clients love it.  Vendors love it.  We love it.
– Gerry W.
I just want to say you guys really stand alone in that you have a quality product and you provide genuine customer service.  It's sad but those qualities are seldom found separately, much less together.  Thanks again for your time and help.

Do you know how rare it is to have a "canned" shopping cart that can easily do complex pricing options on a single item?  Basically, they don't exist!  I have looked.  Everywhere!  And the few that might even come close to CornerStore's functionality cost a fortune!
– Tashina P.
Thank you VERY much for all of your help.  You've really impressed me.  We have support agreements for other software that costs thousands of dollars / year (just for the support), and most of them aren't as helpful as you have been.
– Keith Y.
I just wanted to say that yours is the first product that I've tested so far that hasn't failed on handling uploads.  This is going to work for a print company, so they are handling nothing but large files and all the other solutions I've tried so far have not been reliable.  So far yours has been 100% successful in my tests.

You've done a wonderful job with FileChucker and UserBase, and they have made a big difference to how our website runs.
– Nicholas H.
Nice script, it's saving the day on our project.
– Aaron W.
Thanks again for a great product and great support - beyond expectations.
– Greg S.
The work, the thought and the organization you put into this app is incredible.
– Bruce C.
FileChucker is a great drop-in solution for file uploads, and worth every penny of its very reasonable cost.  Encodable's support is excellent to boot.
– Loren A.
I looked all over trying to find a simple cgi script.  I found that FileChucker was by far the best.  If you have issues with your hosting service's php.ini max upload size then this is the way to go.  Looking forward to future enhancements.
– Bob C.
Why didn't I just do this from the get-go?  So much easier.  Thanks for your work.  FileChucker makes my work easier.
– Dominic M.
Just one word: Fantastic.  10-minute job to plug FileChucker into my app, and it now works a treat.  It's through the hard work by people like yourselves that make my job so much easier.  Congratulations on an outstanding product... Many many thanks.
– Sean F.
Our members think your software is fantastic...  I would recommend your software and your company to anyone.  Thanks for all your help.  It has been a pleasure dealing with you.
– Tommy A.
The amount of customization in the program is incredible.  I was able to integrate it into my existing page layout relatively simply.  I was also able to easily customize the look/feel to match the current site.
