This is probably because it's trying to resolve the internal IP
addresses to names. If you use the -n option, it will print out the IP
addresses instead, without trying to go via the nameserver.

Again it's probably the same problem: name resolution. Perhaps your
/etc/resolv.conf includes more than one name server, and the first one
has problems, so after a while it switches to the second, which is
You could do some tests with
nslookup host server
where host = name of host (e.g., the machine that you are connecting to
with ssh) and server = IP address of name server. If nslookup comes back
straight away, then 'server' is the right address to use. It's also
possible that the name server is badly configured.
