Hmm... I'd use ssh-keygen -t rsa here...

Kurt, check your ssh_config (not sshd_config) and see if you have
"Protocol" line in it. We had an ssh client on one of our DeadRat
boxen that wouldn't connect to anything until I removed the
"Protocol 2,1" line (repeat, this is in client config, not server). 

I like the US government, makes the Aussie one look less dumb and THAT is a 
pretty big effort.                                               -- Craig Small
