Some things you might want to check:

1) Is your hostname set? It has to be set in /etc/rc.conf. 
2) Is your hostname properly configure in /etc/hosts? It should look something 
like this:               localhost               hostname     
(note the dot after the last line. should be the output of 
'hostname', and hostname the output of 'hostname -s')
3) Are you using IPv6? If not, try disabling it in your kernel.
