you have a slow machine. Telnet does ZERO encryption - that's why it's
fast!! For every SSH session the two ends have to generate session keys at
the very least, plus there is the overhead of key exchange if you use key
based auth etc. Then if you do SMB on top of that, then the SMB layer
(curtesy of PAM) has to generate it's own packets and network traffic to
auth you.
