	That's usually the reverse DNS lookup.  Do a "dig -x" with the
IP address you are connecting FROM and see what happens.  If it takes
a couple of minutes and then gives you an error (or no answer section)
then that's your problem.  Solution is to get your address (client) added
to the appropriate reverse in-addr.arpa zone.
