Does it hang infinitely or just for 1 minute or so? It might be the
result of DNS issues.
Offtopic, but I have to ask.
Why do BSD insist on having a working resolver (DNS,hosts) to function
properly? It's rather insane that the resolve timeout is so hilariously
A good example is a sshd who lost contact with DNS. If you are lucky
you'll get a login prompt after about 2 minutes. If you're not lucky,
sshd just kills the connection.
Could anyone here perhaps explain the reason for this behaviour to me?
