This sounds like your /etc/resolv.conf is wrong, so you can't resolve
domain names. Remember that ssh will try to do a reverse DNS lookup, to
see what domain name you are using, and eventually use a ssh key. If you
can't resolve, this can take quite some time. So you might just WAIIIIT
for a long time, and it will work (my guess).
Also, now that I see the problem, this sounds like a debian-user
