    recently my terminal has slowed right down on connecting. even to local hosts in my LAN...

    i initiate the connection and it's just painfully slow, after maybe 30sec to a minute the login prompt appears.

    i cleaned out my .ssh/known_hosts file... hrmm

    any ideas?

    Check the following file for unneeded/unwanted content:

    Code:
    ~/.profile
    This file is loaded every time the shell starts. Extra stuff in there may be gumming up your shell loading.

    for *every* host?

    Are you ssh-ing to IPs or domain names? Try IP to avoid a DNS lookup.

    Ping times reasonable? (well under one second)

    can you 'dig' or 'traceroute' the remote guy?
