BSD - CANT SSH IN REMOTELY IF I DONT LOG IN LOCALLY FIRST

Im running a server with FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE.

Problem:
Unless i log into the server once, it wont let me log into it using ssh. Once i log into it locally then i could log remotely to it via SSH. Will not work until i log into it locally first. If i need to restart the server remotely i wont be able to log back into it unless i go physically to it and log it once.

I know this is a config issue. Can you help and do i need to post any config file here?

Thanks!

Looks like your DNS does not serve reverse PTR zones. It will log in after a time, a half-minute or so

edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config

and make sure you have UseDNS no

after that run /etc/rc.d/sshd restart

Now you should be able to log in just fine.
