Hi Julxu,

Did you try different SSH client? Do you always see this error message? Can you post the config and what version the 3560 are you running?

It appears that this error was generated by SSH2. Have you tried using SSH1?

I think I remember getting a similar error some while back and it turned out to be that Cisco had introduced some new improvements in their implementation of SSH that were not compatible with some versions of SecureCRT. So I would agree with Lei Tian that trying a different SSH client may be a good thing to try.
