openssh 2.9 slow connections

To anyone,

I have installed openssh 2.9 on Solaris 2.7 and the 
default setup is slow. It takes about 4-5 minutes to make 
the connection. I am connecting to a Solaris 2.8 with 
openssh 2.3 on it. A RH Linux 6.2 version connects to the 
same machine without the delay. Why? I have seen other 
similar postings expressing delays in openssh 2.9.

ftp and telnet work find as always with the same DNS 
setup as always. Does openssh use reverse DNS? This may 
explain it.
