Try this :

ca zeroize rsa

ca gen rsa key 1024

ca save all

If you are using putty as SSH client, make sure, the SSH version 1 and 2 both are selected.

Which version of PIX OS are you using?

Some of the older versions do not support SSH, others (up to 6.35 I think) only support SSH version 1.

Good Luck

Are you able to telnet to port 22 from Command line ?

Does it open up a blank window ?

If yes, then ther's someting wrong with the SSH client you are using. Make sure putty is setup correctly. Also, did you verify that SSH 1 and 2 both are selected on it.

You have mised out

"aaa authentication ssh console LOCAL" in your configuration. Add it and try connecting again.
