    Thanks for trying that. The next thing I'd try is deleting your SSH known_hosts file. To do that:

    1) In the Finder, choose Go to Folder… from the Go menu
    2) Enter:

    ~/.ssh

    and click Go
    3) Drag known_hosts to the trash

    If that doesn't let you login I suspect there's a server problem, and I would recommend contacting the server administrator.

    Thanks,
