    pix 501 ver 6.3

    keep getting 'Invalid message type' when trying to SSH into my outside

    did the following
    ca zeroize rsa
    ca save all
    ca generate rsa key 1024
    ca save all
    ssh X.X.X.X outside

    when connecting from the x.x.x.x network i get prompted for username
    and password but get this error saying invalid message type.

    have tried reaply commands above but no luck.
    any ideas?
    thanks in advance.

  2. Try to force Your SSH client to use DES only in negotiation. I suppose
    Your PIX has only DES activation. The 3DES/AES is now free, You should
    apply for it.

    Did you do...

    conf t

    before your commands and

    write mem

    after your commands?
