    Maybe it's trying to resolve the client hostname in .rhosts
    and .egual .

    Try getent hosts client_name on the server and check if you get
    it resolved instantly or not.

    If the slowness is from you typing the command to you get able to enter the
    password, yes then it's the DNS, see to that you either disable the DNS
    checking on the Linux box or fix your DNS or /etc/hosts.
