That frequently is the result of Domain Name Service (DNS) being
misconfigured. The FTP server does a reverse lookup on the incoming IP
address so that it can make a pretty log entry. Eventually it times out
the lookup and continues. I think the FreeBSD default timeout is 10
seconds. If you see delays connecting to a server that are in multiples of
10 seconds, it is a good bet that the server doesn't have you in its
/etc/hosts table =and= doesn't have an accessible name server configured.
