I'm experiencing long delays (~10 seconds) when I try to login into a
server running cygwin 1.7.13 using ssh. The symptoms are basically the
same as described here: http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2012-02/msg00844.html
I somehow have the feeling that it is network related, more specifically
the problems appeared (if I remember correctly) after I changed the
computer name of the server.
cygcheck -srv now prints
HOSTNAME = 'loker-it'
USERDOMAIN = 'RS200313'
COMPUTERNAME = 'RS200313'
The server is a rented root server and is NOT in a domain. Originally
the name was 'RS200313', but I renamed it (in Windows' Advanced System
Settings -> Computer Name) to 'loker-it'. I have the feeling that cygwin
thinks the server is in a domain. How can I tell cygwin not to set
USERDOMAIN? And while we're at it: how can I set COMPUTERNAME? Can I
simply export the variable?
Please let me know if you need more information.
Thanks for your answers!
