SSH Slow password prompt

Just had a problem with my vmware player install of Ubuntu Natty. Doing SSH takes a long, long time to come back with a password prompt. This is really aggravating.

Solved it by finding the following info:

1. Edit the /etc/ssh/ssh_config file using the following command

sudo vi /etc/ssh/ssh_config

Commentout the following lines

GSSAPIAuthentication yes
GSSAPIDelegateCredentials no

save the file and exit

2. Test it with ssh to another box, should be very fast now!
