Maybe, but most likely the problem lies elsewhere.  can you ssh from that
same remote host in?

Check your /etc/hosts.deny, it's probably set to ALL: PARANOID.

PARANOID does reverse lookups for incoming connection's hostnames, and
rejects them if they don't resolve.

I'd check that first... to test, comment out that line in hosts.deny.
