Slowness with cygwin from behind a VPN

Mon Sep 12 14:41:00 GMT 2016

Hi everyone,

I've noticed a problem with a specific command on cygwin, but only when 
executed behind a VPN. I would like to know how to find more information 
about this problem, and/or how/where to report this potential bug.

The following command is taking a lot of time behind a VPN (works fast 
without the VPN):
cmd.exe /X /C "git --version"
Running git --version works equally fast in both cases, so I would guess 
there is a problem in cmd.exe/cygwin, but I'm not sure. Any suggestion 
on how to gather more information about the network is welcome.

My cygwin version:
$ uname -r

My cmd.exe version:
OS Name:                   Microsoft Windows 7 Enterprise
OS Version:                6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601

My git version: 2.8.3


PS: This is my first time on this mailing list, so please apologize for 
my mistakes.
