Thanks a lot Marko, this link works fine for me!!
probably the VPN is adding delays in recovering user or group data.
You can try if running cygserver improve the performance:

I've noticed a problem with a specific command on cygwin, but only

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
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
