Openssh 2.9p1 and scp is slow connecting

When I try to scp from or to a system, scp take up to 10 minutes to connect
and copy the file.  Both systems are Solaris 2.6 and openssh 2.9p1.  I issue
the command: "scp host:/file /", up to 10 minutes pass before the password
is requested and then the file copies very fast.  When I ran a truss on the
command, scp seems to sleep for the time before it asks for the password.
