Synopsis: User cannot login through telnet or ssh because of reverse resolving delay
State-Changed-When: Mon Aug 30 13:19:01 GMT 2004
To my mind, this is a host configuration issue. First, you
may list multiple nameservers in your resolv.conf so that
should one of them fail, the others will still respond to
queries. Second, the resolver timeout and attempts may be
set to a lower value (see resolver(5) for details) if your
network can suffer from all its nameservers being unavailable.
Please also note that some ways of ssh authentication may
rely on a name service being available.
