I'd guess that you're machine isn't able to do a reverse name lookup on
the box you're coming from. Assuming this is the case, two options
come to mind:
1) Add an entry in /etc/hosts for the client machine. This is only
practical if it has a static IP address.
2) Modify /etc/hosts.deny, and change the "ALL: PARANOID" entry
(assuming it exists) to "ALL EXCEPT sshd: PARANOID".
Hope this helps!
