cannot ssh into a box with DHCP assigned IP address

I have a laptop with FreeBSD -current,
with ip address assigned via DHCP.
The laptop has neither a static ip address,
nor a domain.
I can ping the laptop fine, but cannot
ssh into it. The sshd is running, /etc/ssh/ssd_config
seems fine, /etc/hosts.allow is fine.
However, /etc/hosts is just the default:
::1 localhost localhost.my.domain
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.my.domain
Is it the lack of a domain that prevents
me from getting ssh access?
I try to ssh with just a dynamic ip address,
for which ping seems to work fine.
Or is the problem somewhere else?
I'm not even sure I'm asking the right
