    Hello folks,

    Everyone has suggested that reverse dns lookup is the problem. However, even
    with my hostname in the /etc/hosts for BOTH systems, I still have the login
    delay problem. Any other suggestions?

    DNS problem. The server is trying to do a reverse lookup on you.
    Quick test is to put your ip into the servers /etc/hosts and see if the
    delay goes away.
