My Application tries to ssh to a system, which is alive and i can ping to
it, but my ssh command hangs and doesn't respond for hours.
I tried the -o ConnectTimeout option, but this works only for machines that
are not around. For example
ssh -o connectTimeout=5 root@ times out in 5 seconds.

My case is a little different, I know a machine exists but there is some
problem with that and its not answering my ssh request. Any help would be
greatly appreciated.
