Somehow after upgrading the ASA Cluster 5520 from 8.03 to 8.04, I am not able to get ssh sessions through the tunnel.

The handshake starts, and then it stops after a while, and the remote client does not get any packets through the tunnel.

I this a known bug ? Is there a workaround ?

I downgraded to 8,.03, and it worked fine, execpt for the security problems...

The security appliance allows SSH connections to the security appliance for management purposes. The security appliance allows a maximum of 5 concurrent SSH connections per context, if available, with a maximum of 100 connections divided between all contexts.SSH is an application running on top of a reliable transport layer, such as TCP/IP, that provides strong authentication and encryption capabilities. The security appliance supports the SSH remote shell functionality provided in SSH Versions 1 and 2 and supports DES and 3DES ciphers
