I've got a fresh new laptop with Ubuntu 16.04 and I'm experiencing slowdown problem in console/terminal when connecting in ssh in a remote server: connexion is slow and typing char has some delays.

The connection ssh log (-vvv) have no "failure" or "error" messages

Cannot update server's UseDNS and sshd_config (unix.stackexchange.com/a/6230/70524)

Thanks for helping.

    It's UseDNS and sshd_config (unix.stackexchange.com/a/6230/70524). – muru Jun 20 '16 at 6:36
  • I don't want to (and cannot) update all server(s) configurations – Lionel Jun 20 '16 at 6:44
  • If the server is configured to do so, that's what you will have to do. – muru Jun 20 '16 at 6:45
  • this problem only occurs w. my new laptop, all was fine with previous one – Lionel Jun 20 '16 at 6:52

    have you tried running your ssh connection with some -v options to get more info on when it might be renogtiating or otherwise having issues – Amias Jun 22 '16 at 9:37

This issue has been solved w. a recent Ubuntu update, no problem anymore!

Thanks for helping
