Re: ssh login lag

You are blocking any incoming DNS packets by blocking udp. I believe
sshd tries to lookup the hostname of the ipaddress, it times out in few
seconds, this causes the lag. This can also happen if
your /etc/resolv.conf is pointing to unresponsive servers.

Following are the following fixes.

-> make "UseDNS no" in sshd_config

-> allow DNS from iptables AND verify /etc/resolv.conf
