IIRC, 5.0-R has reverse name resolution for sshd (which is _always_ done, because of PAM, I think, no matter what the configuration file say) run chrooted in /var/empty. Well, the problem with that is that, by default (ie, in the absence of any configuration in /var/empty/etc) is searched first, and if you have blackhole enabled (or equivalent firewall rules), it takes a LONG time for it to realize no answer is coming.

Dear FreeBSD,

    I have installed 5.0 into a new Dell.  I have not set up anything
special yet (no firewall, no natd, etc.).

    I can ssh out to the world, but I can't get into the new box from the
gateway FreeBSD box on the same home network.  The gateway box properly
lists the new box in /etc/hosts.  Each box can ping the other by name
and by ip.

    I have tried the OpenSSH that came with the system, and I
installed ssh-3.0 , and the result is the same.  sshd is running
on the new box.

I enabled telnet in inetd.conf, and I get rejected, also.

    Is there a new default connecton protection that I must turn off, or
something?  [/etc/hosts.allow  is the default setting, I see no answer
