ssh_config and GSSAPIAuthentication



The default Fedora ssh_config file comes with GSSAPIAuthentication set
to "yes".  This causes a DNS query in an attempt to resolve
_kerberos.<hostname> whenever ssh is invoked.  During periods when
connectivity to the outside world is interrupted for whatever reason,
the ssh session won't proceed until the DNS query times out.  Not really
a problem, just more of an annoyance when trying to ssh to another
machine on the LAN.

Is there a reason why the default ssh_config comes with
GSSAPIAuthentication set to yes?

Thanks,
Jay
