Did you check /etc/hosts? Or if you are doing local DNS, then check
that... looks like it is failing a reverse DNS lookup. Also, check
sshd_config and see if "VerifyReverseMapping" is set, and if so, then
make sure that is what you want. I am assuming that you have control of
the SSHD side, also, since you mentioned sshd_config as one of the
things you checked.
