I wrote a question the other day regarding slow authentication. disabling GSSAPIauth did the trick. However, I am now faced with another issue. When reviewing the PuTTY event logs, i now have ~20 second delay between Sent Password and Access granted.

Has anyone seen this slow behavior ? Again, I am using a windows 7 box with putty to connect to a RHEL5 linux server. Basically they sit on the same network.
