slow ssh connection

If you are experiencing slow ssh connections, then possibly your system is trying to do reverse lookup of the IP address. If that is the case, then you can add the below to “hosts” line in /etc/nsswitch.conf file.

‘[NOTFOUND=return]’

The other cause for slow connections can be GSSAPI authentication. If that is the case, then the simplest solution is to add the following in your “~/.ssh/config” file:

So, here is the link for you, just in case you are searching for the same:

viewvc – serve current directory in web interface.

Here is the description of viewvc:

ViewVC is a browser interface for CVS and Subversion version control
repositories. It generates templatized HTML to present navigable directory,
revision, and change log listings. It can display specific versions of files
as well as diffs between those versions. Basically, ViewVC provides the bulk
of the report-like functionality you expect out of your version control tool,
but much more prettily than the average textual command-line program output.

and to install, just execute:

sudo yum install viewvc

And when you want to serve the current directory in the web browser, you just need to execute the following command in that directory:

/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/viewvc/bin/standalone.py -r $PWD
