Connection timed out

I am trying to resolve a connection timed out problem. The problem
occurs when I attempt to ssh, or http to my freebsd host from my windows
(2K) box. About 3/4 of the time I get a "Connection timed out" when I
attempt to ssh into the freebsd host.
Coincident with this behaviour, I can not ping my windows box from the
freebsd host, and when I try I get no packets returned.
Meanwhile, the freebsd box at no time has any problems pinging google,
only the local network. I recall having a sockets timeout variable or
something that needed tuning when I ran freebsd as a http / ssh server
before . Can someone provide a hint as to how I can resolve this?
