Long delay when connecting to server via ssh

I am installing IP Filters on a Solaris 9 Sun server.  

The initial connetion to the server is extremely slow.  After getting the username prompt, there is a 45+ second delay (DNS??) with the connection returning a password prompt.

I have the following in my IP Filters configuration file:

block in log on bge0 all
block in log on bge1 all
pass out quick all

block in quick proto tcp from any to any port = 23
pass in quick from any to any port = 22
pass in quick from any to any port = 53

Any suggestions on improving connection response time?

What tool(s) do you have that might let you run a detailed packet-level trace on this?

Snoop on Solaris says that the packets go out.

Wireshark on the Linux box indicates that they never arrive.
