Decreasing SSL connection timeout

hi people,
i need help about timeout duration of ssl while connecting to another server in network.

this is what i try

bash-3.00# time ssh root@ "date"
ssh: connect to host port 22: Connection timed out
real    3m10.215s
user    0m0.007s
sys     0m0.011s

there is no machine in my network which has IP, therefore ssl connection timed out after 3m10s. (about 190 seconds)

i'm trying to decrease connection timeout duration, because any machine that powered off for maintenance is delaying scripts. any suggestions?

OS: solaris 10
bash-3.00# ssh -V
Sun_SSH_1.1, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL 0x0090704f

I don't believe ssh itself has options for this. You'd need to tune the kernel TCP timeouts, which would affect all other TCP sockets on your system as well.

OpenSSH does have a "ConnectTimeout" option. Unfortunately SunSSH lacks this feature (and many others).

You can always ping the server before ssh'ing.
