telnet delays before login prompt

When I telnet or ssh my Linux box residing on the same LAN, it delays like 10 seconds before it sends me the first login prompt.
It's a Mandrake 10.

Best Regards

Thumbs up got it

It's been solved when I added the client hostname/IP to the /etc/hosts.
Thank you, Tesekkurler
