Why gentoo cvs server is so hard to connect?

I takes me a few minutes to run a simple command ‘cvs add’ :(. Is that because I’m in China?

I’ve already tried

ssh -M -N -f user@cvs.gentoo.org

Does anyone have any advice to speed up access?

BTW, wordpress’s quick post is just a way to write draft?

Oh my god, I’m still waiting for cvs add……

    If you have ipv6 configured check out that your route is not lousy. For me the ipv6 route was three times slower than the ipv4 one.

      Ah, I guess this may be the reason. I find that my ipv6 route is a mess.

    Might be also that you dont have enough entropy which you need for speedy ssh access. Try adding some with sys-apps/timer_entropyd if thats the case.

      Thanks for answering. The speed is good when I access other machines. Is entropy so important?

        well if your connection to other machines is fine then i’m not so sure. but entropy does make a lot of difference – can be up to 20x speed increase in ssh/scp transfers.

    Hmm, git can’t replace CVS soon enough, good to know I’m not the only one who finds themselves doing a `cvs up -dP` then wandering off to amuse themselves with something else for five minutes.

    For me, the initial connect takes a while, but then the cvs update takes ages.
