Slow SSH Login

When I ssh to my VPS (using putty) I get the log in prompt immediately. However, after entering the username and password it takes almost 2 minutes before the command line is available; same thing happens with SCP.

This is an OpenVZ VPS, hosted on my own VPS node if that helps.

Why would this happen?
